  1. Beautiful. I love the lavender tie-dyed looking petals. 🙂

      They are very pretty flowers but so damned hard to photograph as they are very small. I really needed to get down very low and close, but didn’t for some reason.

    Alas, we don’t have ’em here, the pretty things ! – at least, I’ve never seen any …

      One reason why I DO like England is the changes in the seasons. When spring arrives I just feel like smiling all the time especially seeing the flowers erupt.

        I am glad you feel like that, for it’s one of the reasons I should love to live in the top half of the world, somewhere in Europe …

        1. Heyjude says:

          …somewhere like …Italy?

        2. M-R says:

          or France …

        3. Heyjude says:

          Oh, yes, France. I regret not spending time in France, but I never had any money for holidays and then when I did, I used it to visit my son in Australia. Now I am just too damn old. Although maybe we’ll be in France in August…

          If you do go, will you read our travel site before, for at least one or two pointers …?

    If I could get rid of the Spanish bluebells I might have room for some delights like these, I’ve grown them in previous gardens!

    1. Heyjude says:

      They are such pretty plants. Don’t think I have grown them though.

    What delicate little beauties…..

  5. We have these growing in my rose garden. I never knew their name though. They multiply like crazy and now they pop up in the lawn in patches.

    So pretty this pale purple.

  7. I always love seeing them 🙂
