When people riot, it’s generally ugly, but not so with flowers.
Over millennia, you could argue they’ve mastered the art of sharing and combining better than humans.
Not that they are reluctant to maximise their time in the sun. Flowers show some respect for each other’s space but not much, like eager young dancers at a group audition. Of course, it’s harder when you’re tumbling.
My pictures most often show plants that are a bit more orderly than these but when you’re arriving late for a flower party, you may as well throw off all holds.
So today I’m sharing seas of flowers…
spikes and clusters…
and tangles. All in an excellent cause.
If, like me, you’re late to join in with Cathy’s A Week of Flowers, you still have a few hours left.

I’m glad you enjoyed them.
My favorite kind of flower garden is one that’s rioting.
It’s what summer’s all about.
Well worth waiting for. I can almost smell those Dianthus!
Now that’s a thought. I’m still on the tardy side, as you see!
Let the flowers riot! What glorious bursts of colors. No wonder we love flowers so much.
They’re never afraid to gloriously be.
A lesson, surely.
The delphiniums are gorgeous, and appear to be in a perfect setting. With plants that have tall spikes of flowers, the anticipation of their blooming is almost the best part.
I love spike-bearing plants. We still have spires of foxgloves on parts of the moor, now gone to seed, covered down one side by snow. They’re pretty, but I haven’t managed a decent picture.
Your usual beautiful compositions
Your flowers are absolutely gorgeous and full of life! I could stare at them for hours while drinking tea.
Don’t let your tea grow cold for the flowers’ sakes.
Such a lovely garden 🌻
I’m glad you enjoyed it. These were taken in several gardens.
We should never underestimate flower power. 🙂
