But we will start in the city with flowers and bees in the small city orchard. A riot of colour, of beauty.
Borage and bees
more flowering herbs: yarrow and tansy
& I know this is a herb, but can I think of the name? No 😀
A sort of poppy (though it’s probably not)
and in a brighter orange variety – a bee burrows for the rich nectar & pollen
Paper daisies, eternally cheerful
a solitary blossom in a courtyard
This should be up with the herbs: valerian flowers:
and to my delight – a cornflower. That blue is just lovely.
one of these is a marigold, and the other – pretty but unknown.
Kangaroo paw en masse:
and these were my delight – when I was a child, we had yellow ones in our garden and called them ‘granny’s bonnets’. They are columbines 🙂
In MtLawleyShire itself, there are still bottlebrush flowers. I love the pink variety. So delicate:
some flowers seen in a verge garden:
the stunning architecture of a dandelion seed head:
the heavily perfumed flowers of the rainforest tree – they are street trees and I walk through perfumed air sometimes
roses in one of the gardens I walk past:
and a bee on a clump of roadside lavender
but here – this is the prettiest flower of them all 🙂
