Pictures from the Allotments

This time of year is an excellent time to wander around the allotments to see what is being grown & what can be photographed. Since many people now are focused on "grow your own" there is a great variety of plants available in order to take pictures of flowers and pictures of vegetables and fruit.

This time of year there is an abundance of sun flowers. The bright yellow flowers and also the darker sunburnt flowers. The picture in the middle shows a sunflower just about to burst to life.

I am always amazed at the near perfect form of dahlia flowers. There were some wonderful examples to be seen with a promise of many more to come over the next month.
