the first blackberry flower

It stands out like a beacon, glowing in the low sunlight against the shadowy background. The first of many flowers on this faithful old cane has now opened, and the season is on!

UPDATE: See the gigantic berries coming in later in the season!

Also blooming in the warm late afternoon sun…

Santa Barbara daisy, or fleabane. Great plant for dryish borders or slopes. Never stops blooming.

White clover peeking out from behind a sapling of spiky english holly.

The prettiest girls of all, the little fumitory. Tiny pink and red fairies shining in the light. Classic!
