For Amy's Five on Friday, five of my favourite plants blooming now:

Lupinus regalis


Geranium macrorrhizum 'Spessart'


Geranium sylvaticum


Aquilegia vulgaris


Syringa vulcaris






Only one photo of lupins? No, that won't do... They have just started to flower and merit a set of five photos of their own. :)
















I'll come to visit you as soon as I can.
Have a lovely weekend!

  6. Pihallamme kukkii juuri nyt sininen koristekasvi.
    Mietiskelin tällä viikolla, että mikähän sen nimi on.
    Yllä olevasta kuvasta tunnistin sen lehtoakileijaksi.
    Ihanaa kesäviikonloppua :)

  7. The Lupins are so beautiful, here they are out of blooming. They bloom so grand.
    But the geraniums are also very beautiful, I find them also in the wild.
    Have a very nice weekend, Sara!

    With love, Gerry

  14. First I thought the lupins were my favorites, then came the geraniums, then the aquilegia and I thought it couldn't get any better. Then the lilacs. They are all my favorites - wonderful blooms in your garden! Enjoy!

  23. I like your favourite flowers Sara but you got me at the lupins. I'm hoping by letting my one plant self seed it might create a small patch of paradise as you have with yours.
    Have a great weekend!
