Two of the Nigella Damascenas or Love-in-A-Mist have popped, and there are numerous ready to burst. One of the two is quite tall with 5 petals, but this one which is much shorter has 12 petals. Apparently they can have anything between 5 and 25 petals. There are numerous varieties of this plant with different coloured petals: dark blue, pale blue, pink and white.
I love Spring as there is always something new in the garden every day.
