photo journal no 17: the meadow allotment

On a rainy and quiet dark day around midsummer I revisited this allotment made into a meadow. So beautiful. I had happened to pass it a few days earlier on a sunny day but with no camera. Now the weather was changing to rainy and windy and I wanted to shoot some photos before the meadow lost it’s flowers in the wind and rain. It started raining just when I got there and I got som photos just in time. I love that the owner uses the whole of the allotment as a meadow with different flowers. Nothing else, not even a place to sit. But lovely with the blue and pink flowers. I will go back this summer to see if the owner is there and if the flowering changes during the summer. So hopefully to be continued…
