Honeysuckle in the garden for today’s Flower of the Day 🙂
These tiny red flowers grow on (and along!) anything they can find to climb up – in this case an old raspberry plant.
The little green leaves belong to the red flowers, and the big coloured textured leaves belong to the raspberry plant 🙂
Underneath the multiple layers of disintegrating tarmac on this city back-street, it’s possible to see the original road surface of granite setts still sitting perfectly in place.
I’m old enough to remember when driving over city streets like this one meant car tires rumbling loudly over the regular pattern of smooth-worn stones making a very distinctive sound, so it’s nice to see that underneath the modern road surface they still exist after all these years!
This particular pot-hole is actually quite deep so hopefully will be repaired soon, but is surprisingly circular in shape so I captured it with my phone camera while I still could 🙂
Over the years I’ve photographed many clouds – some white and puffy, some glowing orange with the setting sun, some dark and brooding, some seriously strange in shape and some just plain weird…
I’m learning to paint at the moment, and have been working with using photographs as reference images – but sometimes I think if I painted clouds the way they actually looked, no-one would believe me! 🙂
Our Hot Lips salvia is doing well this year – the little red-tipped flowers are small but eye-catching 🙂
Red roses by our front door for today’s Flower of the Day 🙂

These little cuties are about golf-ball sized 🙂
Orange rose in my front garden for today’s Flower of the Day 🙂
The climbing rose bush at the back of our garage has a lovely show of little red flowers this year – oh, and an an endless supply of wicked little thorns that catch you unawares to go with it…
