Floral Focus

“The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another’s, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises.” ~ Leo Buscaglia

The weekend photo challenge over on our site https://weeklyprompts.com is Ambience and was chosen by GC.  He asks us to show off the floral displays that enhance our environment.   This is my response to the challenge.

My first photograph is a cottage garden I photographed during a recent visit to the Lake District in Cumbria. I was privileged to visit Hill Top Farm, once the home of the late Beatrix Potter. This pretty cottage, with its magnificent floral displays of hanging baskets, window boxes, border plants and decorative chimneypots filled with flowers was spotted just a few doors down from Hill Top.

The floral displays in the next picture adorn the market square in the little Yorkshire town of Otley, just ten minutes from my home.

Daughter Sophie is a keen gardener, often preferring pot plants to ground planting.

The next pictures are my own attempts to brighten the areas outside my front door, my kitchen door and the upstairs balcony.
