Small Things

260413fritillaries

I love fritillaries and they love the damp. The area where these are growing was completely flooded earlier in the year. We had a warm day yesterday, a damp one today (and the heating has come on) and frost is forecast for tomorrow. What is the poor gardener to do? I’m weeks behind. There are still pretty things to be seen and I took these pics first thing when I went out to bring in the bins. I can’t show you the masses of primroses everywhere because I can’t get a good landscape photo. Nor the grape hyacinths and some particularly nice pulmonarias I have because my photos just don’t capture the strong blues. But here’s a few pretty flowers.
