More flowers for the 4th July

Wednesday, 04 Jul 12 Cloudy 22°C / 72°F

It’s a good thing I take photographs! I realised looking at the photo of the Westerland rose with the Honeysuckle on the arch behind that there was a blue flower on the arch. I had managed to miss that Betty Corning had climbed higher up the arch and had a flower. I had been keeping a careful eye on all the others, but completely missed that one.

    I like the blue of your salvia near the yellow of the yarrow! (Near my yarrows I have sowed some blue cornflowers, and now I’m looking for a suitable perennial blue flower.)
