colour here we come

A Beautiful sunny day here in Staffordshire and my early summer flowers are starting to emerge.

My first poppy flower for 2010


This water avens (geum rivale) has been in flower for a couple of weeks now but I think it is looking glorious today


I just love aquilega




I do think that bugle (ajuga) works so well with forget-me not,

 as you can see forget me not is everywhere in my garden, I love it,  I think the name did it for me! It won me over as a child, and I will always have it in my garden, however hard Mr S. tries to get rid of it.
I might get out again later and take some more photo's, something tells me this could be a good day for butterflies when it warms up a bit  x
