A Spring flower



This is one from a plant cutting my mother in law gave me, but unfortunately I cannot remember the name. It's beautiful though and was blooming for the first time on the bank garden this morning, in the bright sunshine. It was quite hard to get a good photo as I kept casting a shadow on the petals! And now the sun has gone in so it's closing up!

What a beautiful color and flower. You must be anticipating the coming growing season (summer) .. we are just starting to wind down. After a long summer I so enjoy the autumn. But there is still much work to be done.

Oh, I wanted to say, your carrots are beautiful, too. Just love to pick up a new small carrot and eat it as is.
