I am about as green fingered as The Blue Meanie from the Yellow Submarine. I only have to think about cutting the grass in the garden, for the said grass to get up and run away in fear of being butchered by me let loose with a lawn mower. House plants tremble when I approach with a jug of water.
I do, however, love taking pictures of pretty things, and I am lucky that the place where I work has a Garden that is lovingly tended and produces some amazing flowers. I take what ever chance I get to snap the flowers at various stages in thier growth.
This image was taken purely by chance. I had walked by this plant (grown on a Vine growing up a wall. Ordinarly, I hate Vines as they take over literally never stop growing until they are burnt with fire. This bloom caught my eye and I had to go back and look. Out came the phone and quickly I took this image.
I love that I can be surprised at any given time by something in (one of) my back gardens. Go take a look about and see what you find. Share what you find with someone, you never know what you’ll find in return.
