Seasonal colour

It is time for more of the poetry of the Beloved. Here are some recent blooms. From the top left...
  • Impatiens, 
  • an unknown - shrimp flower? 
  • Peonies and a spread of lobelia and impatiens with bright lonicera nitida 'Baggesens Gold' behind, 
  • yellow foxglove, 
  • closeup of lobelia, 
  • bonsai maple  (6 years old?) in a pot with begonia behind, 
  • yellow rose, 
  • a pot full of miscellaneous succulents purchased from the Lieutenant Governor's from a year or two ago, 
  • a pink peony and some purple foxglove near the fence, 
  • and a brightly coloured trumpet plant with a stray Solomon's seal in it - The trumpets lived over the winter and bloomed again. 
(Flower names are as hard as Hebrew vocabulary!)
