Yesterday, I posted snow pictures during the summer solstice!!😱. Today I’m posting summer flowers to make up for it. 🤗💐 As long as you don’t ask me what they are!

By photos,poetry and haiku by Derek Ross

I am a photographer/ poet from Dumfries in South West Scotland. I concentrate on minimalist images and prefer using an iPhone these days. As far as my writing is concerned, I usually write short poems (some in Scots dialect), hence my interest in haiku and related forms.


  1. Number one and three is delphinium. Mine grow higher than six feet – then the wind and rain last week bashed them down. The last one is, as Liz says, hydrangea. I think the one above is lobelia.
