A Rainbow of Colours

It's raining here today, and the sky is very grey so I thought I'd cheer things up with a rainbow of colours from the garden (taken on a sunnier day!).

RED - forgotten variety of strawberry!

ORANGE - Runner Bean 'Enorma' flowers
YELLOW - Sisyrinchium


















  
GREEN - Rudbeckia Occidentalis 'Green Wizard'

BLUE - Delphinium Magic Fountains 'Dark Blue Bee'




INDIGO - Aquilegia vulgaris 'Miss M.I. Huish'

















VIOLET - Scabiosa 'Butterfly Blue'
There - now that's better than grey skies isn't it?

Mich better than grey skies! Wish I could grow Delphiniums, I love the rich blue but the slugs always get them when I'm not patrolling the garden! xx

Lovely rainbow post Su. Much better that grey skies - but there IS a hint of brightness struggling to get through today ... !

Hope that the rain has stopped by now Su but I think that it was welcome in your neck of the woods. Enjoyed your rainbow. That is the second time I have seen that beautiful aquilegia featured in a blog posting recently. Definitely on my wish list for next year :)

Absolutely beautiful, I need some delphiniums in my garden. I just love tall bright flowers. Thank you for popping onto my blog today by the way, I think we share a passion!

A wonderful rainbow. There's always something in the garden to brighten up our day.
