That is absolutely beautiful, it's what I would love to do on the grass verge at the front of my house but it hardly gets any sun.  I've got a few wild flower packets so just growing to sow them in Autumn and see what happens

Well at the moment all that grows there is wild grass that OH trims with the strimmer, the soil isn't cared for at all. I was thinking if I cut the grass really short and make some holes with an aerator type thing then just scatter them??? Would that work? I was trying to think how they germinate in the wild and they don't get any TLC (I can see you laughing now David taking it's going to be impossible for me to grow something that doesn't need TLC )

Grrr....trying to get photos in and it's so slow and all coming out wrong!!

Here are a few recent ones, I've not posted any on here for a while as hadn't uploaded them from my camera.

They will all be in the wrong order but as you can see I like close ups of flowers and raindrops

Well as you can see from the blank post previously, I had a bit of a nightmare David, glad you liked the pics, it makes it worth the effort 

I was trying to find some sunsets for Lily but I think I've posted my best ones already, hoping to get some more in Crete

You're making me jealous again Flumpy, those Gizanias (I think that's what they are called from memory) are beautiful 

CN, I have a pic of one of those little rainbows I took a few years ago at Whitby, absolutely beautiful, I'd never seen one before and never seen one since, I thought maybe they are unique to the East coast but obviously not 


Thank you David, it's the first time I've had them, my dad has them too, they come up year after year, the colours are amazing, sorry to hear yours have been eaten "greedy buggers" . OL you will have your Gazanias next year the you can show off too
