Sunshine! A bit windy and very cloudy but we have snippets of sunshine. It’s going to be a fine day for #bees and other #wildlife. For me too 😊
This week rain reminds me of tropical storms; incessant downpouring, flooding and just absolute gloom. Travelling was a nightmare, traffic jam everywhere and the roads turned into streams. Talking about nightmares, don’t look at the garden, such a mess. Plants need staking or just cut it back, cut flowers , these will be great indoors.
#SixonSaturday I’ve taken a few photos of flowers that caught my eye this morning while having a cup of coffee. The bees and the birds were really busy. Trying to make up lost times I guess. As usual, I am continuing with wildflowers and others that has been growing in my little patch. My #SixonSaturday
This wildflower has bulbous like flower. It’s pale, tiny and amongst all the plants growing around it, it’s really quite a bore. I don’t know what sort of wildlife it serves. Anyway, if you get a closer look it’s actually have an intricate pattern. Quite a pretty little thing really.
Another pink tiny flower which just starting to bloom. Got excited when I saw this vibrant fuchsia pink flower looking up at me. You can’t missed it. Fab.
Think this wildflower is called Birdsfoot trefoil (did you read that, named wildflower, sssshhh 😂 oh please no Latin names 😜) growing under the red poppy which now totally buried under it.It’s a shame as it has these beautiful yellow flowers. Hope it will survive. Food for common blue butterfly larvae, a friend told me. Grows everywhere if you let it be. Come to think of it, not liking that food thing malarkey that much.
This wild rose just appeared three years ago and I kept on cutting it back because it’s near my front door. Very annoying. However, it keep sprouting back, now, have a few stems growing. Last year I let it grew and by late summer caterpillars appeared. Not great I tell you. Phew. Flowers are pretty though and it has this deep red rosehip in autumn.
You will see this plant growing everywhere, it’s pretty, most of all, #bees and butterflies love it. A tropical delight.
And my no 6 is this campanula, I think. 😉Towering plant with its delicate white bell like flowers, very virginal. Another prolific grower. Love it though. Very hardy. It can stay as long as it can find a space to grow.
Gosh! As I write this narrative somehow the weather has become bleak, very dàrk clouds covers the horizon. I think rain is coming. Ha! Oh yes, it trickles and now it lashes. Going to be another wet Saturday. Remember summer 2017?A depressing thought. But hey, summer has just began. A beautiful day is upon us soon. Fingerscrossed, tightly crossed. Enjoy your weekend.
