life a splash of colour Tweet Last Friday was World Photography Day (apparently) and to mark the event Tara asked us to take a photo over the weekend. So, being the good girl that I am, I did what I was told. Well, I nearly did. I took my camera out and everything. Turns out I left the battery charging in the kitchen. Dagnammit. On Monday, while I was going about my housewifely duties (pffff) when I saw these right next to the washing line. I had been feeling a bit blue, but that little splash of colour cheered me up no end. I know they weren’t taken at the weekend, but I’m hoping Tara will let me off. Besides, if it was next week, Monday would be counted as part of the weekend. Just saying. See more, most of which probably stuck to the rules over at sticky fingers. share the love August 24, 2011 By tiddlyompompom #awesomeness #british summer #family #gardening #holidays #photography #the gallery 23 comments Previous Post one more step Next Post dear so and so: the dagnammit edition tiddlyompompom 23 Comments Reply SAHMlovingit August 24, 2011 at 8:09 am Gorgeous colour – my favourite.

Glad they cheered you up XXX My recent post World Photography Day Reply tiddlyompompom August 24, 2011 at 8:25 pm I don't know if it's a word but I know what you mean 🙂 Reply Jenny Paulin August 24, 2011 at 9:05 am Gosh those flowers are stunnng! Never seen that – was going to say breed buts not right!- variety before. Such vibrant images, really great x Reply tiddlyompompom August 24, 2011 at 8:26 pm I have no idea what they are. This is only our second summer in this house & I don't remember them from last summer. I'm hoping some green fingered reader may be able to enlighten me 🙂 Reply Mum2babyinsomniac August 24, 2011 at 9:32 am Wow, these are amazing! I absolutely love walking round and just looking at the flowers in everyones gardens at the moment, sadly I never used to notice them when I was younger. I might even get into gardening so that next year my garden can be full of them! x My recent post The Gallery – Special Moments Reply tiddlyompompom August 24, 2011 at 8:26 pm I have only got into gardening since I have been old enough to have my own outside space. One day I may even know what plants are called other than flowers and trees 🙂 Reply Nicki Cawood August 24, 2011 at 2:10 pm What beautiful colours! I'm glad these gave you a bit of a lift x My recent post The Gallery – In honour of World Photography Day Reply tiddlyompompom August 24, 2011 at 8:27 pm thanks, they really did 🙂 Reply mutteringsofafool August 24, 2011 at 2:19 pm very bright colours, they must really stand out in the garden! Reply tiddlyompompom August 24, 2011 at 8:27 pm they do, so find it hard to believe I didn't see them last year? I blame the then new-born little m 🙂 Reply LauraCYMFT August 24, 2011 at 4:51 pm Those are really lovely 🙂 Reply tiddlyompompom August 24, 2011 at 8:28 pm thank you. there are LOADS of them too so it's very colourful in our garden right now 🙂 Reply pamperedmummy August 24, 2011 at 8:52 pm Wow what great flowers.
