Broom's on Fire!

In the late Spring there are two magnificent Brooms come into flower in the shrubbery and I love their colours, so different from the native yellow versions which flower around this area. An all-round success story as they are much loved by the Bees too.

Thanks to one and all for calling in tho view this and past images. All greatly appreciated. Sorry if I've been leaving a lot of just clicks but I am very busy in the garden trying to get things sorted before winter.

Update: A huge "Thank You" to Lynne (LynneJoyce) for the 2 variations she has produced for me. As I rarely remember to click on "Mods" she forwarded these by email. They are versions 2 & 3. Felt sure you'd want to see them as they are gorgeous! I do have a favourite, after some consideration. Wonder which is yours?

This is nice crisp capture so well worth a vote. I think there is another, possibly better image in here with a little tweaking. I couldn't resist trying but as you haven't enabled mods I can't post it, but if you want to see my idea for it just message me with your e-mail address and I'll send it then delete your e-mail address immediately to protect your privacy.

The title certainly sends the sparks flying in this intensely hot image, simply scorching, and a pleasure to view.

V2 for me because it seems to be growing in the right direction. I assume one of Lynne's? Wow!
I just had to buy one of these, the flowering was short-lived, but glorious, its first year though.

Lynne really is something with her presentations, isn't she?? Of the two, the first one (V2) works better for me hands down.

Of these 3, yours is my favourite.

These are some really beautiful flowers, Ann. Look at those colours! A fiery sunset in florality. And look at all those little red hearts above. It's like a Valentine's Day bloom Smile Sorry...broom!
