White Nigella (Love in a mist)

First flower to open, many more buds to open.

One of my favourite annuals, especially the white ones. This is a gorgeous close-up. None of mine have opened up yet. I pulled out lots last year but every border has a large number of them despite my efforts so I shall enjoy them and then pull them out to let permanent plantings breathe!

Ange, years and years ago I was given seed of Nigella from daughter-in-laws Mum and they continue to bloom in the garden. Yesterday I found some blue ones flowering.

Siris, the foliage is light and feathery and the flowers can be white, blue or pink. Would you like some seed later in the year?

Beautiful flower, Shirley! 😃 I had some flowering on the balcony about 2 years ago.

I love them too, so unusual and feathery and so pretty. My friend across from me has them every year popping up all over, the blue ones.
I can't grow them at all here, they don't like it.

I love them too, have them all over the garden. Mine have come up white this year.

David, I bet they looked lovely on your balcony.

Janey, isn't it odd how some plants just will not grow in our gardens? I love Pulsatilla flowers and Bleeding Hearts, neither thrive for me.

Ams, do you have some in your green and white area?

It is strange Shirley, but it makes me smile how plants choose where they're happiest, thank you very much, but no I'll give yours a miss..:))
