This is the time when the crocosmia ‘Lucifer’ brings vibrant colour to our summer border.
En masse the impact is quite stunning.
This view of our garden was taken through a rear window of the house – hence the interference of reflections in places and a consequent softening of the focus. But, in particular, I wanted to capture the impact of the few vibrant splashes of red. The poppies add a ‘zing’ to the scene.
But stay a little longer with an individual flower. Marvel at the pattern at the heart of the flower.
Notice the nuances of colour as the petals reflect the sunlight.
