Small flowers in the garden – a series #12

IMG_0046

Little Lobelia.   Pretty, delicate flowers in such deep blues, indigo and white in my garden.  I find little drifts here and there in the garden as it self sows easily.  It does not seem too fussy about where it lives but a good drink of rain such as we had over the past weekend has seen it look much healthier than it had been looking.

The colours of spring

I saw the challenge to photograph the colours of spring on another blog yesterday.

So what are some of the colours of spring in my garden I wondered?

Here are a few as we enjoy a series of warmer, drier and sunnier days which are heralding the change to a new season.
