Seeing as it is still February and I am playing ‘catch up’…
I thought Valentine’s Day roses…
would fit this challenge nicely.
Back to St James Park in london.
I spent ages trying to eradicate two large clumps of this bush
from around the family home in my youth.
A pick and shovel were the tools of trade.
And new shoots would sprout while I was having a cup of tea.
I know it as Castor Oil Bush.
Not sure it that is anywhere near correct.
But to find it in the middle of London
and only a five-minute walk
from Buckingham Palace…..
And not far from the above monstrosity was
this beautiful Dahlia…and friend.

Photographing even one sunset will
provide a photographer with a diverse range
of colour depending on when the photo was taken.
This shot was around five minutes
after the sun had dropped out of sight.
I’m sure tomorrow night Mother Nature
will provide us with a different experience.
…then it dawned on me that I had photos of some roses
purchased for MGW on Wednesday for Valentine’s Day.
Hope everyone had a
Happy Valentine’s Day.
During my 2017 visit to
The Western Front Battlefields
in France and Belgium…
I came across the
Lochnagar Crater Memorial.
