Hillside flowers - H

A flower!

Abc



This is not what I had planned at all. I did want herbaceous border, but no it's not happening this week. Try finding anything in this weather. Those borders out there are not being very herbaceous, perennial yes, but that's not for today being we are not having a p, so to speak. I was not having harbour, high, or any Manx H word again. Just not doing it. So I found a little Hillside spot I am keeping to myself for now, and found this sweet little carpet of flowers just waiting to be snapped. Now me being me of course no I haven't a clue what any of them are called. Sure you can name them, or some of them you gardeners out there. They are not wild, this was a purpose planted plot.


Again it's the little point and shoot, the Olympus stylus 300. Oldish. 7 years but handles the reds and greens well. Actually is a really sharp macro mode, should you have one or the 400 give it ago, looking for the little flower symbol, naturally.

Christmas colors; just lovely, at this time of the year, too, when all here is brown and crackly from lack of rain.

I have a round, green H...

Not the Poyll then?

Mara said...

I usually get as far as red, white and pink flowers. And it serves me quite well...

Gail's Man said...

well all that rain has bought these flowers to life. Not sure if the little flowers are thrift.

RuneE said...

Of course I don't know - I only enjoy...

Marie-Noyale said...

Where did they find the sun to be so lovely!!!

Babooshka said...

That would be telling Marie, but it wasn't found today.

Those little red tulips...they're like a chorus of ruby-throated birds.

Very pretty little flowers.

Gaelyn said...

It's a heavenly hillside of flowers.

Vicki ~ FL said...

And what a lovely hillside of flowers!

these blogposts tend to write themselves despite our plans, don't they?

This has to be the prettiest photo in this week's ABC entries. Sometimes the modest little flowers outshine their showy sisters. Is there a moral here?

photowannabe said...

Totally lovely choice for H. A beautiful hillside full of wonderful flowers.

Martha in PA said...

On the ground planted vegetables, it is unlikely that long grass; the hearts of the good, it is unlikely that health evil.

Yes, your camera captured the reds and greens beautifully. I am interested to see how many daily bloggers have joined this meme!

Life with Kaishon said...

Oh, they are very pretty. I just love them! So sweet! What a wonderful capture for H : )

Halcyon said...

Herbacious or not, it's quite a pretty border. I like all those colors and types of flowers jumbled in together.

jabblog said...

Very pretty - a treat for the eyes, though perhaps not much perfume there.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Neat little corner of the world you've found here. The red might be tulips and the pink English daisies. Hillside sounds like such a charming and calming H-word.

Amy said...

how pretty!

Tulips and Bellis (winter/spring flowering)

Not taken recently, unless I.O.M is in a very strange sub-climate ;)

magiceye said...

bright and colourfully beautiful

Grace and Bradley said...

I agree with you the red color of flower is most difficult to capture using a digital camera. The built in exposure so easily over exposed the red and shown them total wash out. Your Old Olympus stylus 300 worked well.

I have an Olympus 400 I do not use anymore. Maybe I should if I can get results like this.

Small City Scenes said...

Very bright and Spring-like. A spot of color for sure. MB

Mojo said...

Being perhaps the most botanically challenged individual on the planet I have no clue what any of these are other than bright and beautiful. Nice shot!

JM said...

Absolutely lovely!
