A diversion through the Flower Garden

Last week I told you about my new commute through Greenwich Park and how I was clocking up those steps. Well that's still happening but a week and a half in, curiosity got the better of me and I was keen to see what was on the other side of the fence in the Flower Garden. So yesterday on the way home I took a little diversion to see what was behind the banana leaves where I usually turn right.

And as I expected there was a riot of colour with dahlias and coleus.

I had to smile at all the colours and even more so when a cheeky squirrel popped his head up out of the begonias, almost indignant at being disturbed. And of course once he spotted my iPhone he didn't pop up any more...

So I moved onto these gorgeous yellow flowers, I've a feeling they could be rudbeckias, but I might be wrong. 


And then there were the echinaceas. So many colours too, and it's easy to see why they're often called cone flowers isn't it?

they look like hydrangea

So curiosity satiated, now I know what's on the other side of the fence.  Normal service can once more be resumed. Well until I get itchy feet to see another part of the park!
