JUST FOR A CHANGE – AN IMPERFECT SHOW.

Not all that grows in a garden is totally perfect. It can clearly be seen every time we survive a gale, a storm, or a long period of indifferent weather. So, for a change, I am posting a mixed pick of the beauties of nature. The photos were taken in limited time opportunities between long bursts of rain. You enlarge all the pictures by clicking on them.

These nasturtium leaves are the ones that were not blackened with windburn by the storms, however, you can see, like the flower, they have suffered some singeing and wind damage.

Nature has its own way of giving weather warnings, and if I am not much mistaken, these calendula flowers were protecting themselves by clustering together. Are there tiny black bugs sheltering on leaves and the underside of a petal or two.

Another one of nature’s creatures taking the last of the Summer wine perhaps.

A brave burst of vibrant colour. I wanted a picture of it, just in case the flower does not survive the severe weather that is expected,

Is this insect visitor seeking food or shelter, or both from the yellow calendula flower. I think the bloom has been got at before, but, hey! Whatever size creature you are, you don’t turn down easily accessible and probably desirable food.

  1. Hello lilian,

    Those very thoughts crossed my mind when I saw the type of flower clustering. If it was a form of protection, and that is how it seemed to me, it was indeed, very clever.
