Here is Cedric Morris who gets me up in the morning! (See post 29 April.) The flower in the first photo has just burst from its calyx and looks very like the lichen on the fence behind it. They are such subtle colours - I find them exquisite, and there is a whole border of them still to come - annuals are such fun and such great value
This flower is a little more open, pale lilac veined with pink - ethereal. Enchanting, don't you think?
