I read Jackie's journal about the transition to the hotter colours in the garden so I took a wander to see if my garden was doing the same - but there is one place where the blue and mauve are still going strong.

The first photo is a lovely Liatris that has sprung up in the Pergola border. I think I may have got it from a .ier at Johnstown but wherever it came from its very pretty!

Taking that photo I spotted the Autumn Crocus beside it - this appeared in the past two days!

And last but not least - my Wisteria has thrown out a few flowers too! Not ready to giv up on the pastel shades just yet .....

And of course the colour of your pergola is adding to the lovely shades.

Liatris is a great plant, love it. Very early for colchicums, but it has been like that all the way through this year.

These colours always blend in with whatever else is flowering, great plants Hazel.
