A type of shield bug (Corizus hyoscyami) sunning itself on the seed pods of an aquilegia.
Captured on my dog walk earlier this week. The scent was wonderful.
The fields are full of wildflowers at the moment and there are two colours of clover to be seen – white and this pale mauve/pink variety. As a child I used to enjoy picking clover and chewing the stalks to get at the sweet tasting insides – haven’t done that for a few years.
These flowers are so pretty and are flowering abundantly at the moment.
A lovely creamy white rose photographed today. A neighbour has a plant growing along their wall which becomes smothered in these gorgeous flowers.
Spring is finally here – even if it is still cold! Loved the brightness of these poppies growing in a neighbour’s garden – they cheered up my day.
The wild garlic is now flowering everywhere and as you brush past the abundant leaves and flowers, the strong smell of garlic floats up from your feet! These photos were taken while walking the dog today as he delighted in jumping in the river and then running through the garlic plants!
