We’re peeking!

My interpretation of the Peek Photo challenge from the Daily Post is slightly different from the example. Instead of giving you a peek at something half hidden my photo shows a plant, which found its way through a fence in September to give passers-by a peek at its flowers. They were passion flowers.

A late friend of my mother used to cultivate one of these and could explain how it came to have its name.

Glowing colours

Lines from a very popular hymn are,

He made their glowing colours,
He made their tiny wings.

The preceding lines are about flowers and birds. The lines came into my head as I was looking for a photo to use for the Glow photo challenge from the Daily Post. I noticed that red admiral butterflies are colourful and have tiny wings! They were enjoying the Michaelmas daisies.

The hymn is All things bright and beautiful. (Words by Cecil Frances Alexander)
