Unseasonal wallflower

Unseasonal wallflower

We’ve tried growing wallflowers in a few places round the garden but they insist on flourishing in one place only – under the big oak tree.

Consequently at leaf fall they get pretty much buried.

The other day to my surprise I spotted a few flowers peeping through here and there – maybe as a result of the long spell of sunny days.

At any rate, this warmly-coloured specimen has found its perfect foil in the dry leaves.

    I too have got wall flowers in flower at the moment ( SW England). must be due to this mild weather we’ve been having.

      I guess you’re right. I don’t remember seeing them in flower this time of year before. Here, although sunny and still, the nights have been very cold, however.
