Seeing Red in the Garden

It is strange, well maybe not, how the predominant colour in the garden changes throughout the year. I suppose it might be to do with the insects available for pollination duties and their particular penchant. We start off with white coloured flowers then yellow, then blue and then we have the more strident colours, reds, purples and pinks.

The colour red is coming to the fore at the moment. At the head of the queue is the poppy. It is a pity that the petals start falling so quickly. Elsewhere in the garden the red hot pokers are coming to the fore. The flowers of the quince add to the red hues. Even in the fruit and veg end of the garden the colour red is becoming apparent. The runner beans are just coming into flower and of course the indoor strawberries have their own luscious tincture of red.
