enjoying a riot of colour

every month Sandie invites us to take lots of photos in 5 minutes and then share the best 5 and this month I thought that the fabulous riot of colour that I see on my daily walk would be a good subject


along by the river the flower beds are full of ‘meadow flowers’ a lovely mix of colourful flowers.  I love that the mix varies so that some bits are very orange and some are more pink


I love the detail of individual flowers


I love that the whole bed still looks bright and colourful even though many of the individual flowers are not at their best  and many are just seed heads now


I love that the flowers are clearly a great source of food for insects


with brown leaves on the ground and a decided nip in the air I’m enjoying this riot of summer colour – thanks Sandie for the prompt to capture it digitally

What a beautifully planted meadow! I have rarely seen one so floriferous - lovely photos.

And I love that you have shared this Helena!! Wild flowers are a true delight and so rarely seen sadly. You have put a big smile on my face this morning and your colourful images will stay with me as I go about my day. Thank you x

What a fabulous set of pictures. You just don't seem to see this wild flower meadow these days. I really love the Californian poppies.
