BINDWEED AND BUDDLEIA

Purple buddleia flowers and white bindweed flowers with bramble stems and blue sky

I rarely show pictures of flowers but as this is how the hedgerows are just now I'd have to go to great lengths to avoid them.

Saying this reminds me of the song 'I Only Bought You Flowers' by 'The Other Guys' so I'll put a YouTube link below. It simultaneously makes me smile and tearful. If you'd like your heart to be lifted in a sunny day kind of way, try it.


P.S. This was scheduled for tomorrow but something's gone wrong! It'll probably pop up again then. Sorry.
