After the wild irises on the rampart walls, the next to flower is ‘Langport Storm’.
Here it is a few years ago after a nice April shower (bring it on!). It seems to me that the colour was more intense that year. This is our 34th day without rain: I wonder if the drought will affect the intensity of flower colours this year?
I came across this quote from 13th century Sufi poet, Rumi, today: ‘Start a huge, foolish project, like Noah … it makes absolutely no difference what people think of you.’
