What a great summer we are having right now.Just enough rain .Every now and then , when it gets too hot, a big rainstorm will water the  ground  through and through and gets the new flowers going. Today I woke up to once again a corker of a day.How lucky we are. 
Here are some of the annuals that have just come out .Nothing showing till a huge thunderstorm burst out and then the next day- whack, there they were.Rather surprising. I notice that there's a mix right now of lots of pink,purple and orange.All good I reckon.
From the top- first picture  : purple Alliums and pink Lavatera silver cup-  a colour combination that I did not know if it would work or not .. Second picture: detail of Lavatera Silver cup. Love the detailed lines. 
Third picture: orange Crocosmia with Californian poppies and pink Candytuft. I always try to grow this combination as I love the colours together.
Picture four: Cosmos Sensation .
Picture five: an overview of the Alliums with the Lavatera.
If you've never grown annuals before, maybe this has given you a bit of an idea what you can grow.It's super easy and great fun.Put it on your list for next Spring !

Dearest Bea,
Lovely photos from your garden and it looks like rain has been enough for them to look this pretty!
Enjoy your weekend.
