Lilac Splashes

These Geraniums have had a second flush of growth along with the Roses. They have flower buds like Poppies that burst open into these fruity lilac coloured flowers.
These were visited by the Bees lots during the summer.The little splashes of purple are nice colour in a garden that is returning to its green state.
These were originally in the garden, remnants from planting years ago.
The ghostly gardener (who built the raised beds and planted the Viburnum Tinus years ago) would approve.

Having 5 minutes at work again lol so I thought I'd give your blog the once over. The geraniums are beautiful david. I will have to get into the garden and look at them before they disappear. Will see you in the morning when I call round before going to bed:)

Those geraniums are such a pretty color, a bit of cheerfulness to color a fading garden.
