I should zoom out a bit and show the surroundings a bit more to show some context, but I do so enjoy the beauty of those humble flowers that I want them to have their own thread.

This particular kind of willow that looks very manicured is native to Finland of all places

tapestries created by the many varieties of wildflowers by nature are truly spectacular especially when walking among them,observing the finer details the camera only strives to show..yet the camera captures what others know not of in a way as to enlighten about the beauty of the scenery

hence..great thread Octo

Mow the lawn after they bloom and leave them on the ground. You'll have even more flowers next summer yay.gif

I need to pick some lupins, I hear it's an invasive species here and will take over eventually. Got to make sure there's room for native flowers too.

Finland looks lovely in the summer, I have to get back up there for a week or two next summer. You don't get to experience that in Helsinki, but it is a beautiful city.

Countryside never far in Suomi-Finland!

Even in Helsinki you easily get out in the boondocks
for a sightseeing and back in time for supper.
