This summer, I am noticing more flowers than ever. Cambridge has many a cottage garden filled with hollyhocks and bright blooms, so I was inspired to grab my new camera and get out on a floral photo walk.
I shall not apologise for the photo heavy post, as I don’t think one could get bored of looking at flowers!
There are roses in so many wonderful colours in Cambridge.
I bet these would look so pretty if you replicated them in paper form.
This Florist in Cambridge is so beautiful looking.
Our gardener has planted hollyhocks in our front garden and some are almost as tall as the house! (I am really a terrible gardener and am very grateful for help).
I love the delicate texture of the hollyhock flower close up.
My photo walk extended to the V&A courtyard where hydrangea lined the walls.
The pretty pink and lilac hues are stunning.
I’ve also been lucky enough to be gifted flowers over the last couple of months including some beautiful peonies.
The soft petals are heavenly.
This bouquet was colourful and so huge, I had to split it across a few vases when arranging.
What are your favourite flowers? I adore Spring flowers such as tulips and daffodils, but you can’t beat peonies and hydrangeas too. I’m always looking for inspiration for the floral inspired items in my Etsy store.
What other types of Photo Walks would you like to see on the blog? Let me know in a comment below. I’m always open to ideas if it means I get to practice my photography!
