Friday Flowers.

I had a quiet wander around our small rear garden early this morning to discover what colour was lurking amongst all the green vegetation while listening to the sounds of House Sparrows, Blackbird, Robin, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Blue Tit  and squabbling Starlings.
The fat buds on the clump of Iris 'Jane Philips' have now just started to open.

Elsewhere there was a small Geranium, Sempervivums, Allium, the first bloom on Rose (Mme. Alfred Carriere) and the Clematis montana which has been flowering for some weeks. Both the rose and clematis clamber upwards and over the fence so our neighbours also get a good show (for free of course).

And lastly a single head of nodding bells on Nectaroscordum siculum.

Wishing everyone a wonderful wildlife watching weekend wherever you are.  FAB.


  1. How very pretty! Yes, you do have lovely iris (and other flowers) over there across the pond. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. We just got home and are adjusting to being in the real world again.

    All the very best,

    1. Thanks Lois. Yes, I guess it must take a little while to readjust after each trip.

  2. HI Frank....What a lovely wander around the gardens you have shared with us!!
    The Iris is just heavenly,and I have never seen that clematis!! I love the middle layer of petals..I wonder if I could find that here??
    That last one is very delicate looking !!
    Nice !!

    1. Hi Grace. Clematis montana is a fairly common variety so I'm sure you should be able to find one. One of the earliest to flower.
