Blue Monday: Poppy Anemone

Nodding Poppy Anemones

Blue Monday: Poppy Anemone

I found these beautiful blues in the Sunken Knot Garden, at Shakespeare’s New Place, in Stratford-upon-Avon this weekend. The gardens are entrancing; a combination of art, sculpture, the written word and planting that takes vistors on a journey around the grounds, that New Place once stood upon, and through the plays and sonnets of Shakespeare himself. This blue poppy anemone really took my breath away so I wanted to share it for this week’s Fotospeed challenge.

ShareMondays2018: Chasing Butterflies

ShareMondays2018: Chasing Butterflies

There’s nothing quite so wonderful as chasing Spring butterflies around on a warm, sunny day! Brimestone butterflies were definitely in full bloom in the woodland last Friday. Seeing them dancing around the pink blooms of azalea was glorious and a perfect encounter to add into this week’s ShareMondays challenge.
