Summer garden flowers
Having survived the ‘How to build a Mobile App’ Ycademy seminar this past weekend, Monday was rest and relaxation day, relaxing in the warm sunshine in my garden. It was just one of those perfect sunny days, with a very gentle breeze just cooling the air making it a delight to be outside.
Surrounded by so many beautiful summer flowering plants I couldn’t resist taking out the camera to take a few shots. Just a few? If you are a serious amateur photographer you know what I mean, you get behind that lens and lo and behold you have spent an hour or two taking a few photographs, just a few of course.
One of those beautiful summer garden flowers is the bachelor button, or more commonly known as the cornflower which comes in blue, white and pink varieties. They were nicknamed ‘cornflower’ as they were so often found to be growing in fields of corn, rye and barley. The variety we have here in the garden is such a vivid blue attracting a variety of insects, especially bees and butterflies. We bought a packet of mixed cornflower seeds and sprinkled them in the garden when we first moved here. Year after year these cornflowers just keep popping up.
