When down in Englandshire last week, I took a brief trip to Bath. This is the florist’s on Pulteney Bridge.
I always find the pastel colours of hydrangea flowers put me in mind of the coloured toilet paper that could be bought in the 1970s.
This balcony caught my eye when we took a carriage ride around old Krakow. Several balconies were adorned with flowers, but this was the best.
The roadside is prolific with flowers at this time of year. This sweet briar was down near the Dog Loch and caught on my walk into Kilmartin this morning.
Aquilegia are a common wayside plant and self-seeded in gardens.
These poppies grow like weeds around here, and this specimen is one from our garden. The flowers just keep coming all through the summer.
Greater stitchwort flowers alongside pollen-stained bluebell flowers. From the roadside outside the village this evening.
One of my favourite spring flowers, and always reminds me of the Somerset Levels, where they grow in great profusion. Here they appear more sparsely, with the exception (that I know of) being a lay-by on the A83 north of Inveraray. The plant is sometimes known as the Cuckoo flower.
