Alphabe Thursday: F is for Favourite Flower Fotos

By Ronniejt28 @hurtledto60

I’ve been mulling over my 2012 blog posts and the myriad of photographs I have taken over the year.   With Jenny Matlock’s Alphabe Thursday now at F, I thought Favourite Flowers would be a good post.  For those of you who are sticklers for grammar and spelling, I make no apologies for the misspelling of ‘Fotos’, let’s call it artistic license.

Actually, it wasn’t easy to chose my favourite photos of 2012, there are so many.  Eventually I decided to select just two for the months of May through to September.  I suspect I may well use many more for a recap post on the past year.  It is always useful to hold ideas in abeyance so, as the saying goes, watch this space!

Here they are then, a small selection of my Favourite Flower Fotos, starting with Aqualegia (Columbine) and Geraniums (Cranesbill) in May:

In September Scabious (Scabiosa) is still flowering and the Michaelmas Daisies (Aster) are in the full glory.

Ah!  How this has made me hanker after warm summer days, working in the garden.  It has rained for days and days lately, there are floods everywhere you look.  Who would have thought that in April we had a hose pipe ban imposed upon us.   Time does rattle by quickly and before we know it, Spring will be here and shortly afterwards our gardens will start to burst into flower again.
