I'm always pleased when the Aquilegia vulgaris burst into bloom.
Lovely to see the garden has sprung back into life and our Dahlias are looking particularly vibrant today. I thought autumn had started to take a grip but today was warmer than it has been therefore I think the flowers were making the most of the early autumn heat.
