Arbroath in Bloom

Hi all 😁 My earlier post for Cee’s Flower of the Day was of a yellow petunia, which was part of the Arbroath in Bloom display. The display consists in part of bikes that have been turned into planters and dotted around the town and harbour. The bikes have been painted, had baskets/panniers added to them which have then been used as planters. I had never seen this before so thought I’d show a few more images of them.

Bee photobomb

I was hobbling around the garden the other day; the extent of my wanderings whilst recovering from a broken leg 🤕, when the sun came out for a brief while. We have some brambles growing in the back garden and the sun lit them up nicely. Unfortunately my DSLR was upstairs but I had my iPhone to hand so click, click, click etc. A bee also came along to get in the action. I hope you like the results; not bad for a phone camera 😁

Even More Flowers In Cumbernauld

I think I need to start wearing blinkers when out and about in Cumbernauld (only kidding – I would miss all there was to see) as all my walks take far longer than intended. I was out for a bimble with my wife to Cumbernauld House Park, specifically to get some photos of an info board within the park for a blog I was preparing, and some pictures of all the rhododendrums. On the way there, and back, I kept on stopping to photo the various flowers I came across. I was going to say that this was much to my wife’s annoyance, but she’s as bad as me; if I hadn’t spotted something, I was soon alerted by “ooh pretty”.

This is my third post about Flowers in Cumbernauld: Flowers In Cumbernauld and More Flowers in Cumbernauld being the previous two. I am sure that there will be more posts to come as there seem to be colourful surprises each time I step outside the front door.

The following four photos are probably my favourites of the day. A resident living in a house that backs on to a local lane has planted a rose next to the path so that anyone passing by can enjoy it — thank you whomever you are for brightening all our lives with this simple act.
