Aquilegias

The aquilegias in the veg plot are flowering away now and looking very pretty.  Every year I make a note to buy more seed, but always forget.  The little pink one is my favourite, such a delicate colour.  I think it may have resulted from a cross between the purple and white ones as it just appeared from nowhere!











The chives are a mass of pom-pom flowers and everything is enjoying the sunshine and growing well, finally!




Hope you're enjoying the weekend.

  1. You have some lovely varieties and colours - it is at times like this I wish I had a macro lens they deserve close up shots. I also love chives as edging to borders - so easy to divide and increase and tasty too.

  3. Those photos are absolutely stunning! We had a pale pink aquiligea in the garden and I was going to photograph it and then I saw that it was lying horizontal as the dog had sat on it! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  4. You've got some beauties there. I've only got a couple in my garden which are meant to be there, all the rest have self seeded.

  5. Those aquiligia shots are gorgeous, lovely lighting too. I have a soft spot for the pink one too. Those chive flowers are so pretty close up. You have found the perfect lighting to capture them!
    Have a lovely weekend!

  10. So pretty and what a vast range if different Aquilegia you have. I have little yellow ones that look a bit like they are pretending to be mini daffodils, I have no idea where they came from but very cute.

  15. I love aquilegias but although I planted lots of different colours over the years they have all become dark purple. Do they change according to the soil (I've been told some flowers do) or have the other colours died off? I really am a terrible gardener! Yours are so pretty and delicate, lovely photos too.

    1. I don't think the individual plants change, but they do cross pollinate and the new seedlings will then be different. The large hybrid ones I've got result in all sorts of different types, but I'm getting more purples too! xx

  18. Your Aquilegia are truly beautiful! I am not too keen on hybrids as I find the simpler ones so perfect. Your photos do full justice to them. I loved them so much I pinned them, I hope you don't mind!
