Several areas in the Walled Garden at the National Trust’s Wimpole Estate have been planted up with mixes of sunflowers. This brings in tons of wildlife in the form of pollinators and, as of last week, seed eating birds. Plus it adds some instant sunshine.
Sadly though, they have hardly been seen against brilliant blue skies this summer! So, for a bit of fun, I’ve taken poetic licence with the dull grey heavens in the original pictures and photoshopped some, to my mind much more appropriate, van Gogh skies. I’m sure he’d approve of the sunflowers looking their absolute best!
Of course, in one of life’s little ironies, today is going to be hot and sunny!
Hope you enjoy these anyway.
