Purple Theme (Aquilegia 'McKenna Hybrids')

Just took this piccy this morning - I hadn't realised that I had such a purple theme going on at this time of year! Achieved with Aubretia, Aquilegia, Alliums, Heuchera and in a couple of weeks I should have some lovely big bearded irises in shades of blue and purple.....can't wait..... :-)

My garden seems to go in colour phases too. It's been a lot of blue recently. Some of my big Irises are out and finishing but there's other types coming.

My parents always say that spring is the yellow time. I guess now is the pinky-purple time?!

Your garden looks gorgeous Sarah, we are having a very rainy day today so it is nice to see all that sunshine.
