Purple reign

It’s coming up for scabious’s time in the sun once again. Suddenly this lovely, purple flower is bursting out all over. It’s climbing up the banks above the beach and running rampant across the higher edges.

It’s one of those unassuming flowers that has much more to it than at first meets the eye. It’s not just purple, oh no. It pays to study a scabious closely – so I brought one home, to do just that, focusing on a different bit of the flower or viewing it from a slightly different angle. Lovely, isn’t it?
