As we finished the term, I took one last visit to the wildflower meadow on the allotment. I have become fascinated by the number of different types of poppies we have.
There are so many!
I particularly love the crinkly petals on this one.
Some have black crosses, white crosses or no markings in the middles.
The corn marigolds vary from white to deep yellow.
Oh yes, did I mention the poppies, lol?
The bees love them too!
I love how the blue cornflowers contrast so well with the poppies...
and the corn marigolds do too!
These poppies even have black and white markings in the middle!
I am sure I must be boring you now!
This, below, is the only flower I am not sure what it is... anyone know?
Here are a couple of lovely blue cornflowers...
And one last look before September...
I promise that is it! Thanks for your patience and indulging my latest photographic obsession, lol! In all seriousness, if you have some land you don't know what to do with, get a bag of wildflower mix and throw it down! This cost us £8 from Wilkos and has been truly amazing! It has also been alive with bees for a good month, so we are happy to have done our bit for the environment too!
Thanks for looking!
