Cheltenham In Bloom

Being past winners of the national 'In Bloom' competition, Cheltenham has a lot to live up to. In the past the town has won the award for best small town several times and the Council always make an effort with its displays of summer blooms. As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago the different areas of town have different colours of flowers. These photos are from the top end, Montpellier, where the colour theme is yellow and orange.

Hope these brighten your day.

Marley - I love to see when a community does "city beautification" with flower pots and hanging flowers!

First, thanks for the identification of the Smoke Bush. I looked at a lot of pictures of smoke bushes and I am sure that is what it is. Thanks a lot. I have one more to have people look at. Will have to post it soon.

I am really impressed with the blooms you have shown in this post. And all rich colors of yellow and red.

I was not able to get online yesterday all day. Google was down and my blogs are with them. So I am a day behind.
