It has been a while since I posted a blog for are you square but this post is actually for 2 different photo challenges that I enjoy. Firstly for Becky’s are you square which this month is bright, for Cee’s flower of the day.
a common small, bright yellow wildflower that has a lot of long, thin petals arranged in a circular pattern around a round centre.
With the weather starting to feel really wintery today I thought that i would look back for my photograph challenge for today to sunnier times and post my sunflower. I love its simplicity of the single flower head and the bright lemon yellow flower that just reminds me of the summer.
My flower of the day for today is actually quite a common sight in the UK woodlands, hedgerows and coastal areas you will find it at ground level in shady spots. But until today I didn’t actually know what it was. It is Geranium Robertianum but has many names but it is commonly known as herb robert.
Although normally low lying the cover of the partially chopped down tree in the picture below was an ideal place for a little seed to grow into a flower at Martin Mere.
It is an edible flower/plant and it has been used for it’s healing properties.
This is just one of my favourite flowers as we always had a hydrangea bush in my nan and grandad’s garden when I was little. Of all of the flowers that they had the hydrangea was my grandad’s favourite and he always wanted blue flowers but only ever got pink ones.
This picture was taken after a recent visit to a local park where they have a walled garden. It had some beautiful flowers and Mr H and I enjoyed watching the birds and the squirrels playing.
