Contrasting colors in the garden…

In the backyard, along the garage wall, there is a prolific blooming clematis called Polish Princess….emerging from behind the clematis is a volunteer plant that is quite pretty…but I don’t know the actual name of the plant…probably quite common I bet/you’ll let me know no doubt. The contrast of deep purple and bright yellow against the garage wall is a colorful splash I enjoy seeing this time of year. The clematis will bloom until late Summer, but the yellow beauty will be done by mid Summer.

    could be a Peruvian lily – Alstroemeria , just looks a bit pointier than usual. But nice contrast😀

    I’m pretty sure it’s an alstroemeria

    Purple and yellow are my favorite contrasting colors, but I have a yellow house, so mostly, I have lots of purple!🙂

    The leaf and flower structure remind me of an Asiatic lily…does it by any chance develop small black bulb looking things at the base of each leaf????

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
