Wonder of wonders, the ultimate "duh" moment came yesterday when I learned the reason my laptop wouldn't connect to the internet because the wireless switch on the front of it was turned off... Oh well, I might be a great gardener but computer guru I am not!
I have so many photos to share and things to say that I'm totally backlogged...need an internet version of bran ;-)
Hope you enjoy this series of photos, I'll keep you guessing at the plant this bloom is on (until the last shot).
I had such fun taking these photos, aren't they beautiful?
The color range surprised me, while I expected lots of pinks, the yellows were totally unexpected. This one has a wonderful darker center.
From this angle you can see the pollen. Something for the bees to come buzzing around for! I never thought to look for seeds on these flowers later on but I just might remember to do that this year.
While having fun and cropping this photo I immediately thought of Kathleen McElwain. If you haven't seen some of her artwork, you should treat yourself and take a look! Just click on her name and it will take you to her site.
Last but not lease, a lighter pink. Have you guessed yet what these blooms are on? They're from my darling hens & chicks (Sempervivum)!
