Yesterday was my birthday...and this delightful potted Cyclamen was my daughter's gift to me.
Only last week she was lecturing me about NOT getting anymore potted plants to "clutter" my patio with.

When I queried WHY, the comment was
"I thought it better to give you something to kill yourself, rather than cut flowers which are already partly dead!"

Don't you LOVE daughters' logic !!

Iceland poppies


Twelve hours (overnight) and the poppy has flipped its cap and is fully open

July Garden


Not much happening here...the past week has been wet and wintery.
Today is clear,sunny and cool and so some photoes of patches in colour in my garden are for your enjoyment

Firstly, there is the first Iceland Poppy bursting its bud and giving a welcome glow of gold.

A few feet away from the poppies, is a tub of Salvia (I forget its botanical name,sorry) and some Impatiens.
