>Purple

>Names added for Alison:

my favourite Iris with Italian Lavender and the bright pink behind is a succulent generically called Pig Face
the classic cottage garden annual: Larkspur
which I also have in pink and white
Supposedly the Plague Locusts – which are shaping up for this summer to be the worst in nearly a century – don’t like Larkspurs, so it could be a good thing I have thousands of ’em.

another beautiful Iris


and this is Scilla Peruviensis, commonly known as Cuban Lily [ even though the latin name means Peruvian Bluebell ] … tough as old bootstraps, spreads readily but controllably, and soooooo beautiful
