Summer wildflowers

I snapped this shot with my ipad so the quality isn’t great but at least I captured the vibrant colours, dappled shade and mesmerising quality of a field of wild flowers at their peak, at the nearby botanic garden. I recently planted a very similar wildflower garden in my backyard specifically to attract honey bees and butterflies, of which there are sadly few in the area of Scotland where I live. Red poppies are always a welcome sight and you can see many scattered here in the photograph. Butterflies and bees seem to especially like red, purple and yellow flowers.

What a lovely sight! The fascinating silvery tufts of catkins on a riverside willow, glimmering as they sway gently in the spring breeze. I love iridescent things in nature. I kept walking past these pussy willows by a bridge but it was too windy most days to take a decent photo. This day in particular it had stopped raining and the conditions were perfect. I loved the additional point of interest due to the drops of rain.
