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.

Now that's a real lovely shot.
Thank you Aubrey.

My kind of photo on Sunday, nice shot.

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.

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.

I noticed the same flowers the other day when I passed through the churchyard, thank you Aubrey for this permanent record of them.

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.
