Follow the colour

Colourful bunting invited me in to the allotment gardens... and once there, it was easy to follow the colour all around. I liked the juxtaposition of these contrasting colours, textures and shapes - pretty pink roses and a blue shed:

Wonderful pink veins on a cabbage leaf:

More beautiful roses, which seem to be at their best in late June/early July, though wet weather can really spoil them quickly.   

These yellow spikes are, I think, Yellow Loosestrife (Lysimachia punctata). I liked the look against the grey weatherboarded shed:

I'm always a fan of sweet peas and this variety seems to flower abundantly:


  1. Our roses are finished for the year. The heat of the last few weeks was hard on them.

  2. Oh how lovely...soft lighting without harsh shadows...really brings out the colors!

  3. Those allotment sheds make a perfect backdrop for the flowers.

  4. Delightful photos - thank you Jenny!
