a splash of colour

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.

      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 :)

    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

      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 :)
