Good morning GTers! It's always nice to see my #scabious 'Butterfly Blue' reappear for another year, especially as it was rescued from the poorly plant section of my local Homebase! Have a super Saturday everyone! 😀

@richard.spicer.7906 - Indeed Richard! They flowered well into December and I thought the heavy frosts had killed them off until next summer, but here they are again! 😀

Good morning GTers! What an awful morning it is! We've got a mixture of rain and sleet and it's really chilly! It'll probably see the end of my #scabious Butterfly #blue blooms! Wrap up warm and have a great start to the week everyone! 😀

Good morning GTers! Look what the sun has coaxed into flowering! I rescued this #scabious from the poorly plant section at Homebase last year and it's covered in buds at the moment! This is one of the images from my latest photo #blog which you can see at the following link if you're interested - www.bigemrg.co.uk/blog/latest Have a great day everyone! 😀
