    1. I think The Queen would approve. Mum and I were discussing her orange coat and hat earlier this week. I thought she looked great but Mum was less keen.

  1. Beautiful photos! I love the way the gladiolus seems to be balancing a raindrop on the tip of that upward swooping petal. But, oh, that rose! I think I’ve never seen safflower before; it looks almost electric! Another great start to my day — thank you!

  2. I really like the colours in that nasturtium. I must plant some different ones next year, all mine are the bog standard orange, even my dark red ones failed to emerge this year. And I am intrigued by the safflower – I have heard of safflower oil, but never seen the actual flower that it must surely come from.

    1. I grew some mixed variegated ones last year that turned out to be mainly orange. There were not many seeds in the pack and I thought I was being clever by saving the seeds to re-sow, but they have been puny little things, except from one plain green leaved orange one. Sigh.
