Lovely photo, wild flowers have there own beauty.
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.
We used to call this the one 0'clock park when we were young.
2014 been a good years for flowers.
That's a very pretty picture Aubrey..
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.
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.
I agree our Maureen...beautiful... Cheers!!!!
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.
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.
Great image, Aubrey, I took exactly the same shot last week too amongst some others!!
Wildflower beds are being planted everywhere to help save the bees. Lovely picture Aubrey
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.
Great shot - I love wild flowers.
Back to nature. Better than all the fancy pruning.
All i can say is WOW!!
Thank You everyone
Had lots of fun looking at Wigan World with my cousin Lynn, enjoyed your beautiful
photographs. Well done Aubrey.
A lovely photo Aubrey - brings back happy memories (as Lynn explained on the 'phone)
