I have to say that I don't like buttercups
in my flower borders....
they are just so invasive and try to fool you that they are not really there by hiding amongst
the other flowers...
It's not that I don't like wildflowers in amidst the cultivated plants....
in fact my borders are full of pink campion
at the moment....but you can see them coming...
buttercups creep in.....
like commandos seeking to infiltrate their enemy lines!
I have to say that this year the fields and lawns have looked glorious in their golden mantles
So...you patiently ask....
who won the Giveaway??.......ah yes....nearly forgot..
THE WINNER IS....
Please visit her....she would be delighted to see you!!
I wish I could send each of you
as I wanted everyone's name to come out of the hat!!
Right .. now...
where were we.....
Our road is so pretty
with all the wildflowers this year that I just have to show you what I pass
as I go in and/or out every day
I am so involved looking at the variety and beauty I could easily
forget that other people use this road too!!
.....and it's narrow!!
I so appreciate being able to drive again
and every trip is just so special..
Things I used to take so much fore-granted
now become special delights!
I have always enjoyed beautiful scenery
They touch something deep inside
they seem to have an extra special quality!
even the dock seeds add an extra beauty of form
While the foxgloves 'stand guard'
over the hedgerow!
The elderflower is in full bloom.
Time-was when I used to collect the blossoms
to make elderflower cordial...or champagne
Whilst the pink campion...
There is such a variety of colour and shape in the hedgerows this year
I hope that you agree with me
and have enjoyed the trip along one of the narrow roads of Pembrokeshire?!
and have savoured with me my delight in all I see
One of the things I wish I could have captured
were the flocks of beautiful
that arose from feeding on the seeds in the hedgerow
as my car passed......
