Chocolate cosmos

Another image from Wallington - lovely dark red-brown flower, so called because it smells like chocolate!  Added one of Kim's textures, kk_anne.  (Click to enlarge)

Allium seedhead

These huge seedheads were about 15cm in diameter, surrounded by flowering plants of all kinds, but just as beautiful in their own way.  Seen at  Wallington Hall, a National Trust House and Gardens.

Made a drawing of this daisy image - wanted to do a mouseover but haven't worked this out yet!

This seems to be turning into a mini-series!  I carefully carried these home from the beach - it was one of those rare days when there was no wind and a perfect summer evening. Hope this weather lasts!

A bunch of daisies picked next to the beach path.  They probably have a better name than just 'daisies'!  Joining in with Kim Klassen's BeyondBeyond course, day 23.

Red and yellow

It is unusual to see a mixture of red and yellow in fields as the rapeseed (canola) usually flowers in April, but with the cold spring it is mixed in with the poppies this year.  I've noticed that farmers seem to be leaving the edges of fields for wild flowers, good for the wild life which is in danger of disappearing in some areas.
