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.
Cumbernauld Flower Series:
Post 1 – Flowers in Cumbernauld
Post 2 – More Flowers in Cumbernauld
I was on my way back from the early shift this morning by a slightly different route and saw some more splashes of colour to add to my previous post Flowers in Cumbernauld. It was quite windy, so trying to get close-ups was problematic. Still, a bit of colour to brighten the day never goes amiss.
I was heading to the shops the other day and was glad to have my phone with me and was able to capture these fantastic flowers. A lot of people think of Cumbernauld as this dull, grey, concrete town, but these photos go to show that there is colour everywhere.
