Lower London Road in bloom

There are certain natural events round Edinburgh that I always make a point of visiting every year. these include the snowdrops at Cammo, the bluebells in Dalkeith Country Park and (though we often fail to see this at its best) the great crested grebes courtship display on Linlithgow Loch. The Lower London Road verge is something I can keep an eye on as I pass it on the bus pretty regularly and in the past week I had decided it was time to give it a visit to take some photos. The verge was probably planted by local residents and isn't an entirely natural floral display but it is definitely worth getting off the bus and taking a good look! Yesterday I did that after teaching a writing class in Lochend. Here are just some of the wonderful flowers

You captured some beauties. I have never seen pale yellow poppies. Do you know what kind they are?

What a fine variety! Butterflies???

Hi Rabbits' Guy - no butterflies unfortunately, very few insects at ball in fact!

Hi Sandy - no I don't know what type of poppies they are, I think the yellow and orange poppies are cultivated rather than wild
