The Traffic Island Flower Bed

The Traffic Island Flower Bed
A big hit with the locals last Summer was this traffic island flower bed (Blomsterrefug), along gamla Nynäsvägen in Handen, filled with wildflowers. And here is this years version started to bloom this week. You will find Papaver, Moroccan toadflax, knapweeds and coneflowers in there. And possibly a photographer or two every now and then.

It does look pretty gorgeous Steffe, I think a photographer might stick out like a sore thumb in there 😀😀

I like it, even if I don't know anything about the flowers planted there. But any flora usually brightens up an urban area. Re your comment on Ocala: Definitely not! In Florida if you're on a golf course and stand in the sun longer than a minute you melt down to a small blob in the grass. Nobody will ever see you again. Golf carts are the ONLY way to play golf at this time of year here!

This is beautiful. A neighbor planted a large lot full of wildflowers that look much like these. I haven't been able to get a suitable photo of it yet.

Wild flowers make everything look better. We have them in our roundabouts in the bigger city. Here in my town, you can see them on the side of the roads.

This is such a lovely traffic island. I wish it was done more often. The towns would save money by not having to mow the strips.
