The Colours of my World...
These are some of the current colours in my world...
Golden Bearded/ Flag Iris
Purple Bearded/Flag Iris
Mauve and White Bearded/Flag Iris
Chocolate and Cream Bearded/ Flag Iris
Strangely deformed Snapdragons.
I've grown them before but have never seen the flower heads develop like this!!!
But I'll forgive them for they add such pretty colour to an area of the yard that has been taken over by self sown flat leafed/continental parsley..
Much of the garden in this area was inundated with flood water earlier in the year and it is my suspicion that what ever chemicals and residues that washed in with the water and lay around for a couple of days has soaked in and effected many of the plants growing in that area.
They have all struggled through winter... Even the old geraniums that usually remain hardy and almost bullet proof despite the weather conditions... have died back and gone all straggly but continue to try and produce foliage and flowers.
Ah well... such is natures way...
