Nigella Stars

Little Nigella (Love-in-a-mist) flowers light up a corner of the garden. I love these flowers and was delighted to see them growing here, as they were amongst my favourites in our previous garden.

They self seed every year usually in hot dry areas of a garden – which is just as well, as this garden is a hot one. The lack of rain in May and June, and now the heatwave, is making conditions a little difficult for those plants which like a bit more moisture.
