After the invasion of red and white we now have purple flowers taking over the garden:
  • both malvas are full of flowers.  They've been blooming steadily since early May and I am hoping to keep flowers coming by thorough deadheading
  • little pansies are opening up 
  • purple coleus is getting too big for the container  
  • I could not resist and bought a small pink and burgundy fuchsia (I know it's not quite purple but I just had to take a picture of it)
  • and we already had several eggplant flowers

Tiny flowers of purple-blue lobelia are popping up in the containers.  They look so airy and delicate!

What colour is your garden these days?


  1. Beautiful photos! I'm looking forward to exploring the rest of your blog.

    Sadly, my garden has no colors as it doesn't exist! I'm in the middle of a city, so I have to make do with my potted plants. =)

    1. Thank you, Clair!

      Potted plants are a lot of fun too. And if you are lucky to have a balcony, even and itsy-bitsy one, you can try container gardening!
      Have fun looking around!
