How Does Your Garden Grow

Oh where oh where has Summer gone?!

This year she is being such a tease; here one day and then disappearing without a word for weeks on end.

I’m not sure our relationship will last, Autumn is quickly becoming my favourite of all seasons.

The only saving grace Summer has is the abundance of wild flowers growing along the seafront.

The variety of type and colour is impressive and bountiful.

Needing to escape the house, I took a somewhat poorly Ethan out for some fresh air; sea air cures everything after all, and we took a gentle stroll along the beach.

It did us both some good and gave me chance to snap some photos of these gorgeous flowers.

I just love love love this flower about to open up.

The humble Poppy is quickly becoming a favourite of mine, so delicate and pretty.

Carnations!! What the what? Wild carnations, who’d have thunk it!

Even the spikey looking buds are stunning in appearance.

We saw a cheeky little pigeon gathering some twigs for a nest.

These petals are just so delicate looking.

No patch of wild flowers would be complete without a group of daisy's.

Aren’t these wonderful, the jagged petals are a lovely contras to the more traditional rounded ones.

I snapped this one just we were heading home.

  4. Loving these and it's so interesting to see the mix of gardens, plants and surroundings that each of us have from Claudia in Miami to you by the coast. Wild carnations? Awesomeness. Colours galore everywhere at the moment, really uplifting shizzle. Poppies are my new fave - I need to try and hunt some down soon before they all bugger off again.
