The colours of nature

Sometimes nature puts colours together in ways that totally surprise me.

This self sown Aquilegia or Granny’s bonnet is nestled up against this 30 year old azalea, providing an interesting colour contrast.

The other total surprise here is the vibrant and dramatic flowering of this azalea.

I have never seen it bloom with such abundance and intensity in the 24 years I have watched it. The only thing that has been done differently is that I have rinsed out the 2 litre milk bottles on the way to the recycling bin and this plant has been the recipient of these very watery dregs.

Other aquilegias are flowering nearby in several different colourings. They are beautifully delicate in shape and shade.
