I have had a few days off this week to catch up with some of my family and relax. The beauty of always having my mobile phone with me is that I can take pictures anywhere. The seeds heads with a ladybird was taken on a quick visit to Harlow Carr Gardens in Harrogate.
This beautiful picture is my Dad's garden. It was lovely to see the roses in full bloom and the sunshine on his collection of unusual plants. He does sometime open his garden to visitors and you can see more here on his website
On the journey home across the Yorkshire Wolds I stopped to take a photo of this field on the rolling hillside, a mass of poppies growing through the yellow flowers of the rapeseed crop.
