Five on Friday

Hello everyone! I missed Amy's Five on Friday last week and so this Friday I'm sharing some photos of plants and flowers that I've seen in the last ten days whilst out-and-about.

1. Barker's Pool Piazza Garden, Sheffield City Centre - this little garden is a good place for shoppers and office workers to sit and take a break.





2.  At the local garden centre there are displays of cacti and many pots of chrysanthemums.  We went there to buy some seeds as well as more bulbs to plant for the Springtime.




3. At home there's an arrangement of a gift of flowers from a daughter.


4. Local people are thankful for the volunteers in the walled garden next to the library in the park, open to the public for most of the day, who are always busy tidying up the flower beds, working in the glasshouses and the plot of land where fruit and vegetables are grown.       




5.   In our daughter's garden the Virginia creeper on the fence really is that bright red and orange colour now. The roses, the lavender bushes, the heathers and some fuchsias in a pot are still flowering and the Michaelmas daisies give a seasonal touch.

As always I wish you a good day and a peaceful weekend.

  3. I really like that Garden outside the office building. It would be nice when you had a break to go out there and also I imagine the view from that office building is gorgeous. All those beautiful colorful flowers your purse is an explosion of color today which is makes a happy post

  4. Lovely pictures. I miss all the little garden spaces that seem to be around every corner in England. It's always great to see people enjoying the sunshine in these spaces. Not so much here in the US town I now live in. People don't seem to spend a lot of time in the park enjoying the flowers and the sun even in the mid of summer. Thanks for sharing your five!

  24. Such gorgeous gardens. Especially the public space. While here, we have a government authority that is tearing down plants and trees and gardens. :(

  29. These little town/city gardens are worth their weight in gold always cheering up the day. That combination of purple and red is brilliant. I see you've been having some treatment, glad you can now have a rest from it all.
