June 5th – On the wasteland, long unused at the junction of Bentley Mill Way and the Walsall Road at Darlaston, unexpected beauty.
Look once, and it’s a patch of unremarkable, but lush green scrub with gorse flower and a variety of trees – doing well despite last year’s grassfires here.
But look closer.
Lupins. Loads and loads of them. In the full colour range from creamy white to deep, deep purple.
I know this journal is all about the flowers at the moment, but with beauty such as this everyday just waiting to be found, how can it not be?
