Purple patches.

I was stood looking out of the window yesterday when I got the call!  The flowers in the garden are really coming together now and a lot of them are purple!!  Now you know how I love purple and these little beauties were shouting ‘take me, take me!’  Not literally but pictorially.  So I gave in and with my camera in my hand I ventured out into the cold stiff breeze.  If anyone saw me they would think I was mad.  It was really blowing a gale, but between the gusts these pictures emerged.  I hope you like them!

I love the way the grape hyacinth poke their heads between the dense foliage.

These little clumps are everywhere.  Completely wild but oh so pretty!

This photo doesn’t do  this little polyanthus justice.  The flower is a really deep purple.

All the flowers on this hyacinth have not come out, but I rather like the fact that it looks like blue bells.

The aubretia deorates the edge of the rockery.  I love the way it cascades like little rivulets between the rocks.

And lastly the peirwinkle.  The gust caught me out with this one!!

“And so I tell you not to worry….. Look at the birds flying around: they do not sow seeds, gather a harvest and put it in barns; yet your Father in heaven takes care of them!  Aren’t you worth much more than birds?  Can any of you live a bit longer by worrying about it?

And why worry about clothes?  Look how the wild flowers grow: they do not work or make clothes for themselves.  But I tell you that not even King Solomon with all his wealth had clothes as beautiful as one of these flowers.”  Matthew 6. v26 – 29

Yes,  God is good!

    I have periwinkle blooming too, right up next to the house. Otherwise we have no blooms yet. The tulip and dafodil leaves have appeared though.
