Summer Savings

by Sigrid Strohschneider-Laue September. 09, 2018 3065 views

It was flea market weekend yesterday in Oberpullendorf, Oberwart and today in Eisenstadt! I bought some cheap knickknacks and also found a gigantic meadow, which I could photograph for free! As much as I enjoy seeing all the unwanted junk, the so called antiquities, I also enjoy photographing a gigantic area overgrown with different flowers. Maybe the new built garden center at the end of the lane was responsible for this exploding firework of blossoms in all colors of the rainbow. It was feast for the eyes!

Of course I was laden like a mule with two wooden frames – with the glass -, several shiny porcelain cups and plates (yes, again!) and other "Roland-will-still-love-me" and "my-parents-will-get-nuts" stuff. It could have been twice as much and I would still have stopped and made time to photograph all this floral glory!

We should save as much from this incredible summer as possible, because winter is coming! A cold and dark season and we will all complaining as every year about "freezing the own butt off". That will be the moment to look at such pictures to remember all will be better again next summer!

Please, feel free to pick some flowers from this posting as "Summer Savings" - I don't wish for you to become a frozen and mummified body like Ötzi this winter!

#1WOWZERZ!!! What a bonanza of beautiful blossoms, especially at this late time of the season! These will offer great solace during the approaching months of cold and gloom........I love the orange flowers with the tiny yellow flowers inside. Great series, Sis and wonderfully entertaining commentary, as always......

Thanks! blush
It's still late summer and really warm/hot. But the unbearable heat is over, heavy rainfalls ended it. But now its summer again. It seems wil will have a golden autumn!

I love the change of seasons......
Too much of anything is tiresome and
Change in the weather is most always invigorating.....

It's hypnotizing. I think, bees will be sucked in by this pure blue and they can't fight it!

What a glorious patch of colour... and I suspect it has everything to do with the garden centre being next door.

Maybe, maybe not - I photographed in spring besides the street a comparable amount of different flowers.
After EU destroyed every diversity in agricultural nature by law, the have to rebuilt it? Maybe it's a project to enhance the diversity (of course with the wrong species)?!
I buy every year for mother small containers (looking like a large salt shaker) with seeds for such flowers. I would like to imagine a couple of giants with huge "seed shakers" stomping over the field ...

A very floral post full of colours, joy, and generally, good for the mind images.
