When I see all the colours of the flowers in bloom it reminds me of the children’s song ‘I can sing a rainbow’.
The first line, ‘red and yellow and pink and green’, is fairly easy to fill. Red and yellow are all in the Crocosmia (Lucifer), the little jester’s hat-like Spigelia marilandica, and the Hemerocallis lily, then there is purple and orange and blue.
With all the colours of the rainbow, the garden soon turns into a hive of industry, making the flowers not just a pleasure to see, but knowing they are beneficial in preserving our ecosystem. The added bonus of course is you can also eat many of the flowers.
