Peace Roses in a Car Park

These peace roses were blooming on a large bush bordering a car park – you can see the parking space lines in the background. I couldn’t help wondering if they were planted there to minimise road rage later in the day when parking spaces are minimal… 🙂

Pics were taken for today’s Flower of the Day with my smartphone camera early in the morning, so look a bit dull and sadly don’t really do justice to the delicate beauty of the pale yellow pink tinged petals, but oh, they gave a beautiful show 🙂

Poppies in the Street

On my way to work this morning I walked past these deep orangey red tall poppies growing at the root of a tree set into the tarred pavement – they seemed to be waving at me in the early morning sunshine, so I stopped and tried to capture them on my smartphone camera – not the best focus, but it was really hard to see the screen so it was the best I could do 🙂

Flower of the Day

Abstract Bluebells

Some abstract bluebells for today’s Flower of the Day – I just felt like doing something a bit different… These particular bluebells were nestled under the shade of a tree, and it was dull rather than sunny when I took the original pic so the resulting image looked a bit dull and the colours faded – but a digital art filter helped give my boring old bluebells a new, far more interesting lease of life 🙂
