Cultivated wild flowers

IMG_20150724_101520949[1]As I was wandering around Uni today I noticed this flower bed at the side of the road. Up until this year, these beds have contained cultivated flowers, but this year they also contain a fair amount of “wild” flowers as well. It was really sunny, so I could not really see what my pics were going to look like, but they are not too bad.

Anyway, these were a breath of fresh air, and a nice change from the “Parks and Gardens” approach to flowerbeds that Glasgow Council so often take.

I love most flowers, but the ones I saw today were so much prettier than arrangements like these beds in one of our local parks.

    Lovely that they allow this. I always leave wild corners and nooks in my garden… I consider the word “weed” to be profanity. The proper term is “volunteer.”

      Most of our back garden is wild.I pull up the dandelions and the willowherb, but the rest is pretty.
