In amongst the Cowslips near the bottom of our garden; 24 Apr 2013.

These beautiful little flowers have been growing in our garden for many years now.  We certainly didn’t plant them, so the initial seeds were presumably brought in by birds.

I love these simple flowers very much and, every year, encourage them to spread by delaying mowing the areas they inhabit until they have fully gone over and gone to seed.  This is one of the extremely few thought out gardening plans I have  – and it works!  Every year they spread further – wonderful!

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

      You seem to remember right, Poppy!!! Getting down to ground level is iffy – but getting back up again is a Labour of Hercules! And so embarrassing when, haplessly horizontal, one is forced to call the Fire Brigade …

      These flowers are a spring winner for me too, along with Snowdrops and Crocuses – but then they’re a bit earlier in the year. Hope you’re fine! Adrian 🙂
