There's a lot of blue in the garden in July and August.
Agapanthus comes in many shades of blue. (There are also white forms.) It's a generous plant, giving many weeks of interest, from the slow development of the buds to the gradual opening of the individual flowers in the flower head. It attracts bees and other pollinators.On this stem most of the flowers are open and some are going over.
This is a single flower from one of the flower heads.
Cornflowers grow rather untidily - we really should have staked them as they keep keeling over into the pond. It makes life interesting for the fish and frogs! The colour is delicious and the insects like the pollen, too.
