Very nice photos indeed! Nature really is lovely, sometimes it the small, simple flowers that are the nicest.

Are the flowers in the last photo Fuschia? If so, I remember being taught the Irish word for them in school: Deora Dé (tears of God), as you probably know haha

Hi,
Thanks for the compliment,
All of those photos were taken on the side of a road, they are all wild flowers ( weeds )
They just looked interesting as I was passing.
That last one does look similar to a Fuschia but unfortunately is not one.
This is a fuschia

Ah right I see, not totally unlike fuschia as you say.

The fact that they are ‘weeds’ to some people is pretty made. All colourful and eye-catching

I like doing "Left wing" photos, ( If that makes sense )
ie.
Photos others do not bother with.

A weed is just a flower in the 'wrong' place.
