Valerian , as in hedgerows,   came into the garden and was very happy; does spread but easy to pul out.

Then saw these Alliums  against the green and thought it looked well.

Pretty Reds

Well now that the Primrose police have been and the sheets of yellow diminished, I really love them but they were everywhere, it is good to see some reds appearing.

The Weigelia Brigelle is very pretty and I like the two tone leaves. Calycanthus though still a small  shrub has many buds and flowers.  The Poppies are doing their 'thing' and certainly give a splash of red. 

Two trees in one!

I spotted this tree a few years ago outside a petrol station. It is called Laburnocytisus 'Adamii' , deciduous but most impressive in flower. The manager of the station is getting the place a make over and on the plans that tree is scheduled to go!!!!  No way so you may see a photo of me chained to the tree.

As the sun set this evening I took some photos. I found the colours came much more 'true' in the fading light.

I will put up an album of some other pictures.

Not flowers but garden related definitely. They are like a hand of cards relating to Bees and Butterflies. Great for identification if you like doing that. Colour  coded. I got them from the National Biodiversity Data centre on line. They were €6  each and no postage. They are made of a material like plastic so will last and not get dirty when you are using them in the garden.
