This is photo is for Derrick, whose beautiful garden photos are one of the charms of his eponymous blog.
Years ago I used to have a running series on my first blog (now defunct). I called it “Ditch bokay” (a country spelling I used to see in the Thumb). I’d be traveling along fields or shorelines, only to stop short because of wildflowers or weeds in bloom. I’d take snapshots with my low-quality digital camera and upload them.
Asters, lilies and the elusive buttercup – there are dozens of beautiful blooms growing in the fringes.
