The sun shone for a while today and gave me an opportunity to take some photographs.
Jacob's ladder (Polemonium yezoense 'Purple Red Strain') is one of my favourite cottage garden plants. It seems to have gone out of fashion, as I rarely see it in other gardens. The leaves are a lovely reddish purple and the violet flowers are large and very beautiful. It seeds freely, it has been in the garden for many years.....
Have a lovely evening.....time to go and check on that arc.

When we came to the farmhouse we inherited many. Most are yellows and reds....and I have learned to live with them. I never show them on my blog because I just do not like looking at them. I prefer, the paler colours (as above).......including Angelique, which Rose features on her blog each Spring.....now this tulip makes me drool :) I really must plant some in the autumn.
Please, fellow bloggers, tell me do you like tulips ??
Yesterdays brief spell of sunshine and warmth allowed me to take some photographs. We are now back to heavy rain.
Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your gardens, whatever the weather.

The temperature here is 7 C (44F).....it is cold, too cold for April........
The garden is very lush and green.......and the grass, well, as you can see it is out of control :)
