Wildflowers?




"It is always exciting to open the door and go out into the garden 
for the first time on any day."
                                                 Marion Cran


Although only a small section of garden (one neighbour's leafy trees and another's house can be seen in the background above), it gives me great joy, several times every day! I love watching the sun dapple the poppies, cornflowers and other little jewels in this circle.




 Each day there are fresh wonders. The poppy above makes me think of frosted cupcakes.








This is the only poppy with three inner and outer petals, all the others (even on the same plant) have only two.




I can pretend there is a whole field of wildflowers growing out my back door and enjoy every little flower and insect which live in these few square metres.....that which started as a couple of packets of seeds amongst some struggling plants now brings such joy to my soul.

Your close ups of these beautiful flowers are amazing - showing a new view to them ... how much more we could see if we were looking the World from a perspective of an ant?! Sunshine to your week, Nina

You pass on a sense of delight that you appear to feel from enjoying these scenes, with and without the camera. I would pay for photos of your first and last images in this post - I really think they're colourful and beautiful.
