these are not doing the beautiful dahlias justice, they look like velvet and even when they start to loose their colour the flecked hue is just as heavenly
the spiders are fantastically busy and they are EVERYWHERE! but I do so admire their industry and the wonderful webs they weave
floppy petals after the rain but still looking magnificent
up above the clouds were skidding along whilst down below the flax was gently wafting in the breeze, what a beautiful day and what beautiful light
This is a grand sight IF an over-sow on my part ...... with both the Eschscholzia californica and Ammi Visnaga going in, and on, in the same thoroughly confused row. Not as confused as me though, records showed I had sown the Ammi Vis BUT could I find it ...... NOPE! and then saw it germinating through the earlier flowering Eschsch. Fab a dab ...
and here we have a Scabious with both a beautiful flower and seed head ........ and no its not a dandelion
funnily enough a Scabious with a not very interesting flower BUT wooooooo a totally beautiful seed head
getting the drift of the sunflower and the oh so arty reflection of the photographer ........
Just a little glimpse at this weekend sales. A rather belated entry since last time ......... but more to come soon. The sunflowers glimpsed in the second pic were uncharacteristically bashful and preferred looking at the pavement ......... which is a shame as they have a beautiful soft, if intense, autumn hue.
