Round and round and round we go… where will it end? Nobody knows! I love roses. They are the most delicate and graceful of flowers.

Inside Out Petals

High Contrast floral imagery in the National Botanic Gardens. I love these flowers. They are so elegant, and the colours are so vibrant at this time of year.

Watered Cactus

Watered Cactus

A rockery cactus had just been watered and whilst its inner circles had filled with water, tiny beads of water could still be seen lodging to its pastel spines.

Solitary

A single white flower (rose/carnation?) sitting among a dusting of violet blooms at this years Bloom in the Park. How lonely it stands, yet so proud against the muted background.

Roaring Red

Roaring Red

A roaring red flower holds water droplets in its vibrant petals. An image captured at last weekends Bloom in the Park in the Phoenix Park. This picture was taken in the Woodies exhibition in which they created a garden from products available in Woodies stores. This particular flower was part of a hanging basket which had just been watered in preperation for the hot day that was to come. And hot it was. I’m sure after a few hours of taking this picture the flower in question was thankful it harbored so many little water droplets in its petals.

Buzzing Blossom

Buzzing Blossom

I had the pleasure of visiting Bloom on the opening morning and whilst enjoying a walk in the sunshine through the walled gardens, i was lucky to catch these two furry honey bees collecting pollen from the flowers of the garden.

Bees were far from the highlight of my visit however. This years Bloom in the Park is laid out immaculately, with a score of beautifully designed show gardens, a retail arena in which you are likely to find almost anything, a haven for foodies sponsored by Bord Bia with notable appearances from acclaimed Irish Chefs such as Donal Skehan, an Entertainment stage sponsored by Arnotts and so much more.

If you are looking for a nice day out this weekend, consider heading along! Kids go free but if the weather is too nice, the little ones may get a little bit hot! Bloom in the park is on all weekend right up until Bank Holiday Monday, a nice way to spend your day off work i reckon.

See more of my pictures from Bloom 2011 on pix.ie.
