More garden beauty.

Some lovely lillies. I have had these corms for many years but this year some thing is different.....some of them have bloomed !! Maybe they like the new position in the garden bed?
This one looks pink in the picture but in fact it is quite dark, almost burgundy. So pretty.

I love this time of year...............

..............when some of my favourite shrubs are in bloom. I don't know the name of this plant, but it is so beautiful. It usually flowers just before a heavy downpour which ruins the flowers, fingers crossed for this year. The next picture........... a close up of the flowers. Pity about the blackberry trying to out grow it. This is a dedciduous shrub who's foliage turns a bright orange in the autumn. I love it.
And something to fill in the remaining space, sadly neglected in its hanging basket, a Ratstail cactus. Ugly plant, delightful flower.
