It was my intention this month to photograph my garden and post a new flower picture every day. But its already the 4th and apart from the strawberries on the first, I haven’t started. However, after glancing through the recent pictures I have taken, I’m going to give it a go.
Today’s flower is Helianthemum nummularium “Hadspen apricot”, one of a group known as rockroses or sunroses-Helios being the Greek God who drew the chariot of the sun across the sky.
I love these little fellows- I have several in the garden, which may become obvious in later posts. They are small and compact, apparently untroubled by pests and diseases and flower reliably every year for about 3-4 weeks.
