Garden Flowers

We didn't think that the Turnip House Yard would look so colourful this season, but it's coming on great - there is a reason for rain as we've noted before!


flower of the summer - argyranthemum

the flowers open a dark yellow, and gradually fade to white, giving hundreds of creamy tones in the one plant

less exciting, but still beautiful

intense pelargonum flowers
