Guarding the daffodils


On a rise above one of the main pre-war routes from the south into Liverpool sits a World War II lozenge type  pill box. Now in a publc park it has little to do except guard the daffodils in the spring.

Picture perfect, by using a great angle and composition. With us it is time for cosmos while you guys have new daffodils.
Les Auld: Thanks Louis for the comment, I wonder if you do gt daffodils in SA.
Great clash here between the ugliness of history and the new growth of the flowers Les, all tied up in a great composition.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, were are left with the ugliness all year round whilst the daffodils renew every year. Isn't nature grand.

Great title here, Les, and a great image. The low angle works really well.
Les Auld: Had to crawl around in the dead leaves to get the angle Alan, thanks for the comment.
If the Germans had been approaching Liverpool from the south we really would have been losing! 0-0 at the moment in Milan!
Les Auld: It does seem a strange place for a pillbox, thanks for the comment Bill.
