Melbourne is a funny place. It rained most of last night, although we only got 7.2mms, still nothing to complain about. Now the sun is shining and there is not a cloud in the sky, although I am not sure how long that will last.
Flowers in the balcony garden love both these things, rain and sun. So do the vegetables, and definitely the tomatoes, but in an effort to stem the tomato obsession I thought I might post about my prettier, more floral garden friends. Ok maybe I shouldn't call them friends, or should I?
Everything seems to match the sky at the moment, radiant blues with a hint of purple. The pansies are looking great, although I am wondering if any of the others will put out flowers and if they will be of a different colour, this was, after all, a mixed pack of seeds.
The cornflowers are bright blue and multiplying. Hard to photograph for some reason, perhaps a mixture of the wind (yes sun and rain and also wind) and lack of a plain background.
There is also an abundance of violas. They look amazing in the sunshine and it will be sad when I have to dig them up to put the tomatoes in. Maybe I can transplant them into a smaller pot and keep them.
Blue flowers, blue sky, this is going to be a good day :)
