This is a new addition this year. It's a candelabra primula. Unlike the drumstick primula, it has a circle of blooms, then grows more stem and then opens another circle of blooms so it ends up being a series of coloured tiers. I really like the bright orange colour. The all important question, though, is will it come through the winter. It likes a moist soil so I have it in with the drumstick primula which finished blooming a while ago.
I picked a bunch of columbine that were knocked over in the rain and made an impromptu bouquet. I like the colours with the petunias and impatiens behind it.
A photo for the skywatchers. I liked the contrast between the wispy clouds and the dense, puffy cumulus clouds. Click for full photo.
