Bindweed is a menace in any garden. It is almost impossible to eradicate and grows at an enormous speed. In this image it is shown ‘strangling’ a young echinops flower head. The only redeeming feature of this invader is its almost pristine white funnel-shaped flowers.
This image was created a month ago, both to reflects my own feelings and to symbolize and express something of the hurt, heartache and anger caused by a sequence of horrendous events – terrorist attacks in Manchester and London and the Grenfell Tower Block fire.
A touch of watercolour filter has been used for this interpretation.
I photographed this plant on the pebbly coast of Suffolk. Unfortunately I’ve not yet been able to identify it!
