Wonderful photos again

As much as I would like to take the credit it wasn't me who identified the beautiful Aquilegia

I've just checked back on the beeb board - it was Kate1123. We could start another parallel thread "mystery identifiers of mystery plants"

Here is a lovely pulmonaria which self seeded itself on the patio.  I have a recurring theme of things seeding themselves in odd places!  There is a tangerine dream poppy behind it.

We had one reasonably sunny day on Sunday (in Warwickshire), and the lily beetles came out in force:

I've no idea what these think they're doing:

Not pleasant, but necessary:

There were quite a lot of ladybirds on the lilies too. So people who resort to spraying do need to very careful. Manual execution is far more reliable.

Some photos from the weekend:

Thanks Pam - your garden seems to be blooming! Things in mine appear to be opening one by one, and I have to take the photos one by one in between the storms!

Lovely photos everyone!

Today in my garden, blessed with a little evening sunshine...

OOh love them grasses and you had the same idea as me with the lovely rain drops on Alchemilla Mollis (that never gets old)

I saw a beautiful red grass at the garden centre I rather liked, it began with the letter U but I wasn't sure what its growing conditions were and also I have to find its spot in the garden, I want the full sun border to have a blue theme, so red grass is no good there ...unless I use it as contrast. Oh, now I did it, just when my mind was made up its back to indecision.

I love photo's of leaves with raindrops.  One of those pictures looked like the leaf had quicksilver on it - beautiful.

Alchemilla Mollis is an incredibly under rated plant in my opinion. It's spring foliage is just gorgeous and soft, with perfect pleats a seamstress would be proud of. Rainfall blesses it with ephemeral qualities whilst it's lime green froths of summer flowers are a real treat mixed with stronger shapes or colours, or on its own billowing en masse across a path. It clumps up very handsomely in size and keeps its shape whilst it even grows in shade. All it asks is not to dry out...and it will happily seed itself if you want it to, so free plants without even trying!

Free plants - always the best kind

Once again, some gorgeous photos everyone.  Lovely
