A Happy Saturday to you. Just a brief selection of the Aquilegias flowering in the garden. I tend to have the dark ones in the sunny yard, and pinky ones up in the top garden. I note I am down to just three pure white ones now (must save seed from those) and one of the flowers on my really tall pink and yellow plant (in a tub) has turned out pure pink . . . Variations of different flower types on the same plant is a regular occurrence too.
I have some seeds started (Tequila Sunrise) which I bought recently, but so far nothing has shown through the soil in the tray. Perhaps the hot temps were a bit much for them - I have them on the concrete in the yard now, covered in a cat-proof tray . . .
A short and sweet post this morning as my asthma's not very good at the moment - heavy rain on pollen is apparently NOT a good thing for asthmatics. I am hoping to avoid another course of steroids.
They adore the gravel and self-seed everywhere.
Finally, some mesh over the strawberry patch which Ghengis DOESN'T fit through!
