Some flowers in my garden........

Cerinthe Major Purpurascens aka Blue Honeywort, Blue Waxflower or Blue Shrimp Plant

Hi, and thanks for visiting my Blog :-)

One of my other passions is taking botanical photographs, so I thought I would share some of my garden photos from time to time.

The first photo above is a plant called Blue Honeywort that I grew from seed and it has been flowering for many months.

This second photo is of my Wallflowers - taken from a few months ago - which was grown with a cutting from my late Father's garden - Dad was a keen gardener, so this plant has special significance to me.  Sorry I don't know the variety, but it is absolutely spectacular with the shades of purple, lilac and mustard yellow - and the bees absolutely LOVE it!!

Wallflowers - Erysimum

And the last photo below, are some of my anemones (there are freesias in the background) that I grew in Spring.  Aren't these colours just amazing!!  This is also a flower that my late father loved to plant in his garden. 

Double and single Anemones

Thanks again for stopping by!  Back tomorrow with a new card!

ah, Jo-bear I see what you mean about the signature on these this is pretty cool play, so where do you buy the watermarks?? and do they come with this really jazzy script or was that you playing around with them?
love Shaz in oz.x
