Great shot GM, I can just imagine you laying there on your sunbed thinking "I must take a piccy of that border to put on Goy, but I cant be a__ed to get up". Lol.

That's a nice shot,G.mage..isn't it lovely to see some colour? your purple plant looks like a Veronica to me..not sure though,but someone will know..:o)

Thank you Annella, & Willi you got it right, we have table and chairs on the deck and always eat our meals out there, when it is nice weather of course! We face north so this area is nice and shady. (didnt say that word you suggested willi!!) Lol
B. do you think its Veronica? are they perenniels then? this comes up and seeds all over he place.
Hi Muddy, this rain is too much isnt it? Its been spitting here but it is so muggy. It is a really beautiful day for a change.

28 Jun, 2012

 

When will it cease?

28 Jun, 2012

 

many thanks GM, that would be lovely

lovely view looking through the railings, I can see some Lysmachia spreading its sunshine around, I think Sandra maybe right about Veronica but need a closer picture for a positive ID;0)

28 Jun, 2012

 

Thanks Pp. This has always self seeded itself all around the garden, have never known its name, have put a pic on for you!

28 Jun, 2012

 

Definately think its Veronica, its common name is Speedwell and the marjority are blue, but Spritz has a purple one 2011 if you want to compare!and it is a perennial;0)

Gorgeous photo. Maybe thats Veronica Linaria!!!

28 Jun, 2012

 

Just googled it! I wish it also came in yellow!!

28 Jun, 2012

 

Gorgeous Grandmage!!!!

I think your purple flower is purple toadflax (Linaria). Bees just love it but it is a very enthusiastic self- seeder.
Love that border. Brilliant!

28 Jun, 2012

 

Very nice indeed xxx

28 Jun, 2012

 

What a lovely view...... :o)

28 Jun, 2012

 

Ooooh Oji. think you & Lou may be right! will check it out later on. Thanks you.
Thanks Magna & Hb.& Paul & Pp, will check out all your suggestions and will let you know.

28 Jun, 2012

 

Now I know its proper name: linaria purpurea purple toadflax, thank you all, clever people!
