Flower Power Friday

There’s a little pot of Anagallis ‘Gentian Blue’ blooming in a sunny spot at my back door. The flowers are a mesmerising shade of deep sapphire blue and utterly entrancing as they sway in the summer breeze…

“The actual flower is the plant's highest fulfilment, and are not here exclusively for herbaria, county floras and plant geography: they are here first of all for delight.”
~ John Ruskin
