Admiring the wild flowers

I’ve been making the most of the glorious weather and taking myself off for walks most evenings. The hot weather and occasional downpours have done wonders for the local plant life and I’ve found myself admiring the many wild flowers.

I’ve recently been admiring the wild flowers growing in our area.

The picture above shows one example I have come across. I’ve no idea what the plant is, but I think it is a variety of grass as it is reasonably common.

What caught my eye was the bright pink of the colour and the near-perfect pyramid formed by the yet-to-open flowers. I also like the mix of colours with the green grass behind and the yellow of the buttercup to the right.

I took the image using a tight aperture to blur the background. Unfortunateely I was so focused on the flower that I didn’t spot the blade of grass on the left of the image but I guess that just shows the pink plant in its natural environment.

It’s not just the wild plants that are making the most of the weather. Our vegetables have come on massively and I shall be posting one of my regular progress reports soon.

I have linked this post to the #MySundayPhoto linky hosted by the marvellous Photalife blog. If you are into photography and want to see some superb examples, click on the badge below and it will take you to the linky.

I must also wish you all the very best for Father’s Day. However you are marking the occasion, I hope you have a great time.

    1. A peaceful walk in the evening is to be encouraged. Glad you thought it was beautiful. It caught my eye.

    1. It’s a pyramidal orchid (or so I’m informed….). I like the mix of green, pink and yellow in the image.

    1. Another kindly reader has looked it up for my. Apparently it is a pyramidal orchid. It certainly adds something nice to the environment.

    1. It’s a delight over there in the UK. I am hoping this weather is in for the summer. The flora is loving it.

  1. What a pretty plant. And how lovely to get out for a walk in the evening. Got to make the most of the light nights. #MySundayPhoto

  2. HI Darren, it is a very pretty flower, it’s near symmetry makes it pleasing to look at. I do like the way you’ve taken the shot, with the focus on the main flower. Luckily it was a blade of grass and not a piece of rubbish you didn’t notice, still it adds to the photo.

    Seeing the vegetables thrive in the warm weather is quite exciting. I’m like a child at Christmas every time I see a new ‘fruit’ forming!


    1. Yes Debbie, I know what you mean. We have our first tomato fruit forming and it’s so exciting! As for the potatoes, they are going wild. We’re going to have a great crop I think.

    1. Ah, no, wild flowers don’t really grow in the desert do they? I know where to find you on your next trip home.

    1. Of they are. In fact I went for a walk with the kids at the weekend and it wasn’t bees were looking at but butterflies.

    The wild flowers have been putting on quite the display of late. Evening walks sound lovely! #MySundayPhoto

  4. Ahh I was going to tell you that the plant is a pyramidal orchid (Anacamptis pyramidalis) John…but because I’m so slow in visiting I see that you’ve already been told.
    I think it’s great to get outdoors and see nature. There’s always something to impress, delight or just amaze you. Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great week ahead.
