Especially on a cold, wet and windy day like today.
This is Salvia microphylla Hot Lips. Where do they get the names from ? Apparently, it was discovered in Mexico, growing outside the rooms of a deeply spiritual maid. I bet she was well impressed when they named the plant 'Hot Lips'. I purchased this plant from Hayloft Plants a couple of years ago. It spent last winter in a cold greenhouse, and I will be putting it back in there in the next few days because it is a half-hardy perennial.
Noticed a number of rainbows this morning whilst I was out walking the dog. Reminded me of the old saying:
"A rainbow at night,
Fair weather in sight.
A rainbow at morn,
Fair weather all gone."
How true it was, as the day wore on, it just got wetter and wetter.
