Delight in Dalry

Just outside the stair door of my daughter's rented flat, and growing wild (a bit like her)




That square of black metal in the top image with a rather thick layer of fresh rainwater clinging to it by surface tension was quite an intriguing mirror.

I hope your daughter's wildness is as vibrant and colourful as that in her surroundings. And I love the rainwater mirror.

Wild but pretty ;-)

They are great pictures. Are those wild poppies? Come to think of it, it might be a mistake to ask you.

Such freshness and natural beauty! I love the spontaneous arrangement.

Your daughter has the same appeal...

Am I crazy - don't answer - and/or has the great disappearing post bug been at your blog again?

Sure last night I saw a post later than this one but there no more.

What is happening?

Calum: No posts have disappeared, although Aileen does play tricks by reordering time around here sometimes. Sometimes I end up eating breakfast after lunch.

Susan: They look like poppies to me (which means nothing, but I am fairly sure they are flowers)

Sue & Cherie & Claude: There are certainly aspects of daughter shared by the wild flowers doing what they want while still retaining fragility and perhaps needing a bit of help now and then.

They are welsh poppies

So they are John, I have just looked up images in the library of Professor Google. Thanks, but what the heck are they doing putting down roots in Scotland? Ah... but they are welcome.
