a year of flowers

The challenge this week is to show our favourite flowers and why they are favourites, but I have far too many favourites for many different reasons so I have decided to have a trawl through every month of the year and choose just one from the many. Mostly from my own garden, but all from the lovely Cornwall.

      Thanks Pete. So many to choose from!

  2. Lynn says:

    The magnolia shot against the sky is absolutely stunning Jude. Nice eye!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Lynn. Always a good idea to look up.

  3. Wonderful collection. You must have a lovely garden

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thank you. Unfortunately not all these are mine, the mahonia, the grass and the magnolia are not, though I do have grasses.

    How can anyone choose a favourite flower? Your month by month selection celebrates the stars of the changing seasons beautifully.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Judith, I have lots of favourite flowers over the year.

  5. Leya says:

    These are all so lovely, Jude! Oh to be a flower in your garden with all this beauty in company and you as the gardener ♥ Thank you for sending so many for the challenge, and I just have to plant those Michaelmas daisies – amazing colour.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thank you Ann-Christine for the opportunity to post some of my favourites. Those daisies are rather lovely, I must release the others from their pot and find a spot in the garden for them.

      1. Leya says:

        Always a pleasure to follow your garden, Jude!

  6. Great idea! They are all lovely.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thank you Carol. I could have chosen half a dozen for each month – well maybe not December!

    It’s hard to pick favourites, isn’t it? These are all lovely and I enjoyed the sense of movement in them. It’s too easy to make flowers seem static, which they rarely are.

    1. Heyjude says:

      A good point. The movement in some of these is probably due to the windy conditions in which I garden!
