It’s been a while since I’ve managed to put together a gallery of pictures showing the plants and flowers growing in my little corner of the world – summer weekends for a children’s entertainer are a little busy! I have, however, been taking pictures quite regularly so I thought it was about time to share them all with you. As my good camera is currently (finally) at the repair center, these pictures were mainly taken on my phone, a Samsung Galaxy S4, with a few on my sister’s camera, a Fujifilm Finepix S.
First there’s the pictures taken around my garden. We have lots of pots and baskets, all now overflowing with fuschias, lobelia and geraniums. Here are a few pictures of them:
Here are some close ups of the fuschias:
and of the geraniums:
There are also lots of lovely blooms in the flower beds – in particular the dahlias:
There are also snapdragons, hebe, roses and various others that I’m not entirely certain the names of…
There are, of course, other things growing in the garden as well as flowers:
I’ve not just been taking pictures in my garden, however – I’ve also taken lots of pictures of the flowers growing wild around the local lanes. Here’s a few general views:
And a few individual flowers:
I had planned to tag and link this to a blogger who was beginning a series of ‘flowers on flowers’ posts. Unfortunately, I now can’t remember who this was! If anyone happens to know which blog this was, please do let me know. :EDIT: I’ve now discovered who this is! Nalinki from Angles and Views has begun a weekly photo challenge with the tag #flowersoverflowers. I might just have to make my flower posts a weekly, rather than a monthly, thing – although, maybe with a few less pictures!
I hope you all enjoyed looking at the pictures as much as I enjoyed looking at the flowers themselves. I’d love to know what you all think.
