I saw this when I visited Spritz' garden TT, and just fell in love with it. It looked "painted". I think it will show sharper difference in shades as the flower ages.

Maybe photograph the flower again as it matures ...

Might catch it again on Monday night. We are off to Dottydaisy's open day tomorrow and Sir Thingamy Hillier's Gardens on Monday.

28 Jun, 2011

 

Oh wow you will be busy!
Hilliers garden near Evesham? That's not far from me!

28 Jun, 2011

 

No, this is the one near Winchester..180 acres of it!!!
Ken and I are flat on our backs today lol!

28 Jun, 2011

 

You must be! We only went to London on Sunday, in that heat, and I was worn out!

28 Jun, 2011

 

I think I had the better - and cooler - location Sticki, the scenery around the Solent (once the heat haze went) was fabulous.

28 Jun, 2011

 

I think you did!

But I had to go to London to meet sons.

28 Jun, 2011

 

ahh well, no comparison then...I do hope you had a lovely day..in fact Im sure it was wonderful for you, hope the boys were well.

Little one had a bad cold, for some reason he has always suffered from them, older one never seems to get them.

It was certainly lovely to see them both, 6 and a half hours in the car was not so lovely!

As Tet knows I have this and it has flowered for months, a little beauty.

18 Jul, 2011

18 Jul, 2011

 

Hahaha! I DID see it Tetra and was compelled to add it to my list . . lol. ;-)

18 Jul, 2011

 

Terrible this compulsion isnt it? Im sure plants have magnets in them and we have responders in our brains..like..iron filings! Mine are getting a bit rusty with all this rain tho.

18 Jul, 2011
