Wallflowers and shadows

By helenlinda
My grampy always grew wallflowers from last year's seed outside his front door. Tony's Mum never grew them as she considered that by the time they flowered you needed to take them out to put bedding plants in. My grampy didn't grow bedding plants.
So that's my gardening background - I do both SmileSmileSmile
These are in a tub and catch the evening sunshine well. I love them - they remind me of my grampy in his one up and one down home with four grown up children till each got married. They lived in Blakesley in Northamptonshire where I lived until I was 2 years old.
These then are special for me and mean very little to anyone else in the family!!!
Thanks for looking and in particular thanks to Sue for her User Award - much appreciated
Enjoy the wind and rain and storms and try to remember the wonderful sunshine over the Easter weekend SmileSmileSmileSmile

Lovely image. The red stain on the fence complements the flowers beautifully.

Back in my youth, wallflowers were girls at the school dance who didn't get asked to danceSad Some were even as pretty as these.
