When I introduced this Campanula from a tiny cutting that I placed into my stone dividing wall, many years ago, I can remember my father saying that I was mad because it would never take. I had taken the cutting from his garden and I don't think he ever lived long enough to see the result. It spread widely all around the patio and it does look striking at this time of the year.
White Aquilegia is another flower that spreads but I do like it.
This Foxglove sprang up unexpectedly as Foxgloves tend to do.
The Poppies are in bud and the Allium are pretty. Strange to think they are related to the onion family. Chives have pretty pink flowers too. I have a pot on my patio.
This is my favourite corner for sitting and watching the garden.
My birdbath developed a crack in it due to the frost last winter, so I have had to put a small container into it..... until I can think of some way of mending the hole (or buy a new bird bath.)
I love the colour of my Clematis.
This is the view from the window..... near to my favourite chair in the house.
Outside, there is a tub containing water Iris that has done very well.
