#FOTD Flower of the Day ~ Rose #Flower #Nature #Photography

My choice for Cee’s Flower of the Day challenge is a rose. I’ve no idea what kind of rose it is. It appeared a couple of years ago growing up through another shrub. The flower is so gorgeous we decided to let the plant do its own thing. Check out Cee’s choice here.

#FOTD Flower of the Day ~ Geum #Flowers #Nature #Photography

My choice for the flower of the day (2nd May) is Geum. Quite a small flower by themselves but a lovely show when the plant is in full bloom. This is the first flower to emerge. If you’d like to see Cee’s choice click here.

The flower of the day today, 25th April, is Wild Marigold. It was already established in the garden when we moved in and I always look forward to the plant coming into flower.

Tuesday Photo Challenge ~ #Animals #Pets #Dogs

I’m joining in with the photo challenge over on Dutch Goes The Photo

The subject is animals and how they can be a source of comfort in all sorts of ways. Perhaps particularly now.

This is my dog, Finn. He a Lurcher/Saluki and we’ve had him since he was about 5 or 6 months old. He’s a rescue from LurcherSOS.

He’s a lovely boy, getting on a bit now, just turned 10 years old so not as sprightly as he was but still enjoys his walks and a run on the beach.
