I really enjoy looking back on these photographs of my garden and remembering summer.
Of all the flowers that may be considered to come into the ‘violet’ category the one that contains a colour nearest to violet is probably the Passion Flower.
Unfortunately, having killed my first Passion Flower, when I found another, that had grown from one of the fruits of the original one, it proved to be an extrememly hardy and determined grower and after a couple of years was really taking over. My garden is very small and regretfully I have had to remove the Passion Flower.
Another plant that eventually gave up the ghost last summer was my French Lavendar. Maybe I will get another one, though I don’t think it was entirely happy in a pot.
I don’t seem to have a lot of violet/purple flowers but I do have a few from the onion family.
There are chives
And my Alliums.
This one below is Christophe and is my favourite.
I also have the pulmonaria in the early Spring
And these Cyclamen in the Autumn.
A bit of a quick post as I am trying to finish the Christmas presents I am making.
