These pictures are beautiful, Wiseowl! Thank you for sharing them:) Looking at them made me think about summer.
Winter was so gray and boring, I miss seeing colorful flowers.

These gorgeous shots of flowers remind me that I will soon seeing some colors in my part of the world. I miss seeing flowers in nature. The flowers in the stores are just not the same for me. Love the last shot!

Lovely shots. I've been lazy with my photography lately and this has reminded me that I really should be shooting some close-ups of my own. There aren't a lot of flowers growing in my garden though as we're heading into winter :(

I absolutely love the picture of Bleeding Hearts. They look so sweet and romantic! I've always had a soft spot for heart shaped things:)

The pictures are so beautiful. The daylilies are starting to come up. It will be so good to see the colors in the area after this gray winter.

I, too, love to take extreme up-close photos of flowers. There's something so beautiful about the texture of the petals, and being able to see inside the flower (the stamens?). I also like to go out in the morning when there's still a little dew on the flowers or right after a rain. It adds a new texture and appearance.

I love the love in the mist. I must try to find one. Deb
I do, too. That's the most unusual plant. Can you give us more information about it? Where does it grow? Annual or perennial? When does it bloom? Is it a shrub or a flower? More details, please!! :)

Love in a mist (Nigella damascena) is a lovely plant. It's an annual that's extremely easy to grow and is self-seeding. You can sow the seeds in Spring through to early summer. They flower from early June through to the frosts - depending on how late you sow the seed. It prefers a dryish sunny site.

A packet of seed should be quite cheap as each flower head produces thousands of tiny seeds. Usually, once you have them in your garden they are there for as long as you want them. Collect the seeds when the pods have dried and sprinkle in early Spring. Any that you haven't picked will seed in situ.

The leaf formation is very pretty and the seed pods are attractive. A very rewarding plant.

This is what it looks like when the flower buds are just forming. You can see how the leaves give rise to the word 'mist' in the name.

We have them all over our garden and never need to spread the seed around. The wind and wild life do it for us.
