Comment by Ken R on 3rd August 2014 at 02:07
Lovely photo, wild flowers have there own beauty.


Comment by alan on 3rd August 2014 at 03:48
if somebody would get round to mowing the grass, those weeds would not grow. when a friend of mine was rector at the church, that mess never happened.


Comment by Garry on 3rd August 2014 at 06:18
Now that's a real lovely shot.
Thank you Aubrey.


Comment by Alan on 3rd August 2014 at 08:12
My kind of photo on Sunday, nice shot.


Comment by Helen on 3rd August 2014 at 08:29
How nice to see the humble cornflower planted like this. When in Cromer yesterday I saw something similar. One side of the churchyard where the old headstones are had been sowed with cornfield flowers, the wild poppies made a beautiful splash of red....appropriate at this time for remembering the men & women who lost their lives in the 1914/18 war.


Comment by Catherine on 3rd August 2014 at 08:57
Lovely
We used to call this the one 0'clock park when we were young.


Comment by Mick on 3rd August 2014 at 09:20
2014 been a good years for flowers.


Comment by Maureen on 3rd August 2014 at 09:50
That's a very pretty picture Aubrey..

Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 3rd August 2014 at 10:20
Alan...how can you say that this is "a mess"?
Lovely picture Aubrey.If the "weeds" came up in my garden like this ,I wouldnt mind at all.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 3rd August 2014 at 10:39
Lovely shot Aubrey - this wild flower beds look great. I have one of them in the queue for POTD - but not from the same angle.


Comment by Lizziedownunder on 3rd August 2014 at 11:29
I agree our Maureen...beautiful... Cheers!!!!


Comment by kath on 3rd August 2014 at 11:43
lovely!!


Comment by Anne on 3rd August 2014 at 12:02
alan ....those flowers have been deliberately planted. Have you not noticed some patches of grass verges are left uncut for the benefit of wild life.


Comment by Aubrey Fairclough on 3rd August 2014 at 12:10
Thanks Dave(Oy), I did take several other photos and was very much undecided which to submit. I think Wigan Council does deserve some credit, the beds were really nice.


Comment by A.W. on 3rd August 2014 at 13:01
I noticed the same flowers the other day when I passed through the churchyard, thank you Aubrey for this permanent record of them.


Comment by Jod on 3rd August 2014 at 13:35
Great image, Aubrey, I took exactly the same shot last week too amongst some others!!


Comment by Gem on 3rd August 2014 at 20:03
Wildflower beds are being planted everywhere to help save the bees. Lovely picture Aubrey


Comment by Garry on 3rd August 2014 at 21:49
To the snapper clan...this is what we on P-a-D like... no tricks a straight genuine shot like this. Nothing added and nothing taken away.


Comment by david on 4th August 2014 at 16:57
Great shot - I love wild flowers.


Comment by Chuckabutty on 4th August 2014 at 17:03
Back to nature. Better than all the fancy pruning.


Comment by daisy on 4th August 2014 at 17:23
