The soft velvety look of this pansy is lovely. Another flowery excuse to avoid my chores and take a few pics.

Sometimes when taking flower photos one’s behaviour may seem a bit odd to others. Like when I stopped in a park to chase a bee around a cluster of coneflowers. We all have fun in our own way…

Had lots to do today but got distracted by the beautiful shades and scent of a bouquet of Sweet Peas. My daughter picked them yesterday while visiting a kind grandmother that lives nearby.

The outer petals of this magnificently coloured bloom where such a deep purple that they looked almost black.
Having recently taken pics of Wild Garlic I was struck by the similarity of these flowers. Unlike the Wild Garlic though these ornamental onion plants are tall and imposing.
Took this pic on a walk through the Millenium Green. It is a tall plant covered in soft, downy hair. The purple-pink flowers have pale creamy centres and it was good to take the pic on a windless day
There was one sunny day this year when I took some Crocus photos. Since then they have been mostly shut. Normally the spirals of them planted in Brighton are pretty to see but now they look bedraggled and unhappy. I hope we all get to see the sun again soon. The bees must be hungry too!
As the snow melted there were patches of ice to experiment with and they created some interesting lighting effects
Nothing says ‘Spring’ quite like a field bursting with crocuses.
Lovely to be out in the sunshine and see the crocuses opening their hearts to the warm rays. Bees were having a good day too.
