There’s a very lovely flowering shrub in the back that makes these super neat blossoms.

This also might be the first year in a while that’s been wet enough that the oxalis makes it all the way through summer (i think the one is oxalis, right?)

For several years this hortensia grew in a pot on the balcony and produced beautiful blue flowers, and then it stopped flowering. It had become too big for its pot. So I planted it in a corner of our collective garden, not ideal for a hydrangea: not enough sun and too dry. For the first year it really struggled. This year however, I took extra care, watered it during the recent dry spell, and it's doing great.!

I suppose painted flowers still sort of count as florespondence. Not my best, but good enough for picking away at it on lunch breaks.

On my way to work this morning, in the little front garden of a tenement in #Glasgow, during a fleeting glimpse of sun. I love anemones.

It’s duckling season at work again, and this morning I found a group of four just near the parking station I park in.

These are Australian Wood Ducks.

Fruit trees, parks, flowers and community farms in the city would be so nice. Plants on and arond skyscrapers, green replacing the gray :)

This information is from my neuroscience lectures. The compounds in chlorophyll activate the olfactory system (smell system) which affects the limbic system and regulates emotions and stress.

The smell of plants apparently reduces stress, just another reason to plant more flowers and food plants in the city :)
