Colours Chez Moi

From the glass globe in my planter

to the red purple of my clematis
and the bright yellow of sunflowers on my table
summer is all about colour, bright colours, subtle colours and
dreamy colours!
The Liatrus is always having a bad hair day, makes me smile.

Beautiful shy blues

bold bright purples and reds

and a bit of everything in my colourful garden ornament, with its rusty patina of age. 

Impossibly delicate

or bold 

the bees and butterflies are loving them all.

Good old summertime!
I have been thinking of flowers all week and painted an early summer favorite of mine. It is of course a lupin and a watercolour:
My photo has turned out a bit bluer than the image, I'll have to take another picture in the daylight.
Now speaking of water, I have to get the garden watered before it gets too dark, hope you are all enjoying your summer. Happy Wednesday, until next time,



  1. A great set of summer images.
    It's a long time since I've seen a mirror ball. It looks good here.

  3. Number 15 is my favourite, absolutely stunning, and the painting, wow it is superb Gillian.

  5. You have a lovely palette going on over there. I love the blue on those bellish flowers. Gorgeous!

  7. Wonderful images Gillian... my little garden is starting to look colourful as the summer flowers bloom.
