  2. Beautiful shots! The one at the bottom is begging to be made into a card with a verse or two on the side. 🙂

    I once watched an opportunistic Sunflower growing at the bottom of a lamp post. One regular passerby watched it with me as it struggled to survive. One day it actually bloomed and we nodded happily. The next day it was gone. We sadly shared the inevitable ending. There’s nothing like seeing nature grab an opportunity to remind us of possibilities. Beautiful photo Crispina that prompted a nice memory. Thank you

    love a scabious, and their close cousin knautia (how anyone is supposed to tell the difference is beyond me). I have several different types in my garden, from the field scabious to pink to lilac to the burgundy knautia. Lovely to see them covered in bees! 🙂

  8. Teasels are one of my favourites, and scabious does have a similar look and delicate beauty.
