Colour

It's hard not to be inspired by all the colour in my garden at the moment.


Roses - I counted almost a dozen different colours when they were all blooming. Not so many left in flower now but good to know I didn't kill them off entirely with my mid summer (you're not supposed to cut them now) hacking back
Pink Rose

This is so pretty. I am sure some clever commenter will be able to tell me what it is. I want to say gladioli but I could be (Probably!) very wrong there

Even colour in the vege patch (zucchini in the making)
Zuchini yellow

And the best colour of all....
First Red of the season


M1 is our little botanist in the making, although perhaps once she gets over her inclination to eat the dirt. I love the concentration in her face and how lush the green looks.

Oh I can't wait for the winter to go and garden time to come to the Northeast.

Almost 100% certain it's a gladioli. Aren't they just superb?

Fi said...

Yep - thats a gladi :)
And as for the orange cherry tom, well we are lucky to see themm. Mr 2 has a habit of pulling them off as soon as he sees them, and they usually haven't ripened up that much!!

Lovely colour for a gladi, nice find!

Beautiful photographs! Thanks for sharing them and splashing a little bit of colour on my grey winter day!

Rose Red said...

Hee hee, glad I'm not the only one who doesn't know much about pruning roses!! Everyone told me they are hard to kill, so lucky for us hey!

And yeah, I reckon it's definitely a gladioli!

So cute - working in the flower pot. The colors are beautiful. All I see right now is grey and white in my garden. We've had lots of snow this winter!
