Gram loved all flowers and often said that “Flowers are God’s love made visible.”
The comment above was shared on a recent flower post of mine, from my dear American blog-friend Ellen (‘Gem’) who’s a grandmother herself and visits some of your blogs as well. She always has the right words! Ellen doesn’t have her own blog but I like to sometimes share her gems of wisdom here. Thank you Ellen, stay well my friend!
Some autumn flower photos taken by Nigel recently, during a local daily walk that took us back to the colchicum field, with ‘dahlian guards’ positioned along the fenceline.

This beautiful red dahlia was eye-catching!
This enforced slowdown is a great opportunity for us to remember the joy of the simple things. Makes the whole thing feel a lot less enforced, when we do.
Thanks Michael, so true and worth repeating 🙂
Take care everybody. If you can, stay home and stay safe
Much love to you all from my little corner of the world
