I love the colour purple, in flowers. Tibouchina.
Velvety fluffy double Petunias.
A bumble bee getting nectar from the Autumn Crocus ( colchicum Autumnale ).
( that's not their foliage behind. They have popped up between the leaves of a Filipendula.) Our free draining soil means most bulbs do so well and multiply so profusely that they are growing everywhere. ( some that have got thrown out accidentally with my weeds are currently flowering under the Avocado trees where we spread the weeds as mulch.)
This Hosta hasn't browned off yet so the mauve looks good beside the lime leaves.
I do have flowers of other colours - red and white that I will save for another post.
Finally just to make you a little homesick Pamela, it is Feijoa time in NZ.
Our bushes have a very small crop this year, but enough for us to relish what we do have...it tasted really nice!
