Poppies, tulips and other flowers
Poppies - a favourite flower for many of us - captured here as their petals unfold at sunrise. Glossy, scarlet parrot tulips contrast with delicate, pink blooms of clematis montana and wild dog-rose. Distinctive fruits of Rosa Moyesii glisten with raindrops, following a heavy Autumn shower.
