Foliage Friday

I love looking at all different leaves in my garden, the different shapes and colours.  Here are just a few of my favourites.

Looking back at Spring

It was a wonderful spring for aquilegias this year.  They are all self set from the introduction of a couple of plants about 6 years ago.  I just love their fairy dress like petals, so beautiful, swaying in the breeze.

I also know them as Grannies Bonnets, what do you call them?

The Poppies are no more

 Thank you so much to the lovely ladies who responded to my last post.  It's good to know that I'm not the only one who suffers bloggers block.  Very big thanks for your support and encouragement to continue blogging so off we go.....
 My poppies came out on Tuesday, I photographed them on Wednesday as heavy rain was due on Thursday

 and today check and yup, they are no more, battered down and petal-less from the rain.  But they were glorious whilst they lasted.
