Flower verge by pyrrhula

Flower verge

(Dutch : Bloemen akkerranden.)
Some farmers seed the sides of the fields with flowers. Great for bio-diversity and insects. This is stimilated , and payed by, the local government.
oh beautiful, so many colours :)

to answer your question - yes, probably around 80% of the time I come out and the koala is asleep. If they are deeply asleep I have to resort to some silly noises and tricks to get their attention if I want a facial photo!

Looks great! Lovely to see sunflowers in the mix...never seen that before! We have some wild flower verges in the UK too now. I have seen more in towns though...it is often difficult to see edges of fields over here, because most fields are surrounded by hedges!

I love seeing all those flowers. My husband often said that a true gardener plants flowers, not just vegetables.

A fabulous shot of these lovely flowers. Where we were in southern Germany, it could be seen all over the countryside. Even roundabouts were planted with these.

So wonderful to see the roadsides enhanced with a scattering of flowers . I love that some of our roundabouts are seeded with wildflowers !

Great idea Fav

Beautiful shot and I like how farmers get a lot of help so they can continue working the land and helping the economy. Our farmers get little help and many have left the land or sold it for building purposes.
