Early summer flowers






This is of course the best time of year for flowers; especially here in the south coast. These flowers self seed and seem to love the coastal climate. They are mostly pink but also in a more of a cerise colour and white. I think they are red Valerian, a perennial native to Europe and the Mediterranean, but now a garden escapee! It certainly grows like a weed but is quite pretty and the bees and butterflies love it!




However, in my garden and the moment the colour of the moment is yellow! My roses are a lovely delicate scent and the yellow irises are doing well!
