Wild Sweetpea

Every year I see these sweetpeas growing wild on Wanstead Flats, here in Leytonstone, East London 🙂

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 🙂

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 🙂

Beautiful Bluebells: Spring 2019

To have such spectacular wildflowers growing so comfortably within a big city is often a surprise to many people, residents and visitors alike, but here are this year’s beautiful bluebells flowering in Chalet Wood, Wanstead Park, East London. Some years they come slightly earlier, and some years they come a bit later, but their breath-taking abundance every spring never fails to make me smile 🙂
