A break in the pink run:
My favourite flower colour is the blue spectrum. These flowers lined the hedges and roadsides of our two-day cycle ride from Reading to Bristol, via the Kennet & Avon canal towpath. On the first day, my partner had both cameras and whenever we stopped together, these flowers were not in sight. I was worried cycling on the second day. I had the Ricoh but, for the first few miles, I saw none of these flowers. I desperately wanted a photo of them. As I resigned myself to not getting a photograph, these purple blooms waved at me from the middle of a traffic island. Dragging my bike onto the island and crouching down, I took this photo. It makes me happy.
