All the colours of the sun

Hello! I hope everyone is having a fantastic summer! I wanted to share this with you. This inspires me to bring a bit of outside indoors and display my favorite container, too!

Happy Saturday!

With much love,
Lisa

All colours are of the sun, and are good.

— Elizabeth Goudge

With July’s sunshine come the colourful flowers – bright pot marigolds and tangerine Californian poppies, scarlet Achillea, purple salvias, geraniums and catmint, and sweetpeas of every hue. July is the month when I switch from wondering what on earth I can spare for a vase, to wondering what I can leave out. Soon I’ll have dahlias, cosmos, persicaria, Verbena bonariensis and more sweetpeas than I can shake a stick at, many varieties new to me this year. The pinkish sweetpea in the picture is the first of my ‘Spanish Dancer’ to bloom.
