Taken at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in London in July 2016.

 

At this year's flower show, there was a wonderful butterfly dome. This particular butterfly decided red is the most flattering colour - and I think he's right!

There were many flowers at the Flower Show (funny that) but this one in particular caught my eye because of its lovely centre. And it just seemed to shine in the sunlight.

Petals galore

I just loved the petals on this flower, graduating from almost white to deep pink in the centre. In a word - lovely.

Taken in the lavender fields near Hitchin, Beds, UK in August 2010.

 

I love this photo because it shows just how much pollen bees can get on them - and they still keep collecting away!

Pale beauty

Pale beauty

Taken in June 2019, in the UK.

I’m very lucky to live in a place that has some gorgeous rose bushes. This year, I had a few pale yellow and white roses bloom, so I had some fun taking some macro shots.

Red gold

Red gold

Taken in BC, Canada in June 2018.

My brother has a wonderful garden - well, he should as a gardener! This is one of his beautiful poppies. I love the flecks of gold dust from the centre of the poppy. The bees were loving it too!

Pink gold

Taken in BC, Canada in June 2018.

My brother has a wonderful garden - well, he should as a gardener! This is one of his beautiful poppies - a more unusual pink poppy. I do love the red ones the best, but I think this is a lovely colour.

Light and shadow

Taken in Madeira in Sept 2016.

Madeira has some wonderful flowers. I particularly liked this one for its unusual shape and colour. But I really like the way the light has accentuated the pattern in the flower.
