hot day photographs

A few days ago I noticed a large thistle plant near my home. I didn’t manage to photograph it until yesterday, by which time it had been chopped down, hence the faded colours in the images below. I placed the cut portion against the hedge to take the photographs. I was on my way to keep fit class with time to spare so took the other photographs along the way.

I wish I knew the names all these plants/flowers/trees that I photograph! If you know, share the knowledge!

    I do know the last one, well its common name anyway ‘smoke bush’ I had a beautiful one in my last garden – where we are now they drop dead every time I try.
