With the atrocious weather we have been having I didn't feel at all guilty watching the Jubilee celebrations on TV yesterday. In between the showers, though, I did manage to take a few photos of the flowers in the garden. The roses have suddenly burst into bloom and this one has the most amazing scent.
Considering mauve and purple are two of my least favourite colours we do seem to have an abundance of flowers in these colours in the garden.
The flag irises are flowering in the pond and I have never seen a white one with the delicate speckling of purple on its petals before
as yellow is the usual colour.
And finally a dragonfly.
