Flowers & Plants 3


Fall Mums belong to the Chrysanthemum family. Captured these beauties in a neighbouring garden.


Some Flowering Flax “Bright Eyes” (Linum Grandiflorum) in my backyard.


These Poppies have now completed their life circle and made sure there will be plenty of new ones again next year 🙂


The calendar may say Autumn, but that doesn’t prevent the plants in my ‘wild corner’ from keep on blooming as they have done all Summer.

Still a few late bloomers left in my ‘wild corner’.


A solitary Californian Poppy (Eschscholzia californica) glowing in the evening light.


A small Sunflower bud well on its way to glory. I applied a couple of filters from Topaz Studio to achieve a painterly effect.


Still a few Poppies left in my backyard 🙂


A blooming Windflower, also known as Japanese Anemone (Anemone hupehensis), captured in my backyard.

Spotted this little beauty in the undergrowth of my wild corner. I believe it’s a Crimson Clover (Trifolium incarnatum).


Blueweed, also known as Viper’s Bugloss (Echium vulgare). The flower buds are pinkish and gradually turn blue when fully opened.


The Borage or Starflower (Borago officinalis) is a fascinating plant to observe through all its stages.


A small Hoverfly verifying the authenticity of a blooming Oriental Poppy.


Another Oriental Poppy just opened up this morning. Below is how it looked like an hour earlier.


You’ve got to be up early in the morning to see the budding Poppies, but I think it’s well worth the effort.


Two Oriental Poppies swaying gracefully side by side in the early evening light.

Another Giant Poppy has emerged in my backyard, albeit a little smaller than the first one as it only measures 15 centimetres (6 inches) across.

The Poppy season is in full swing now 🙂

I haven’t yet figured out how to shoot Foxgloves in a more interesting or creative way, but I think this attempt turned out reasonably well.


Another light-coloured Aquilegia hybrid has shown up in my backyard.


A bright yellow Aquilegia captured in my backyard.


A white Columbine captured in my backyard on a grey and overcast day.


This little Columbine had a rather wet experience on its very first day.


The first of my Columbines to bloom was this mutant or hybrid which I haven’t seen before.


The incredibly intense colours of the Gazania flowers almost have a psychedelic effect when they open up and reveal all their beauty.


Gazania flowers only open up when the sun is out.


A Tulip in my backyard just about to open up.


Slowly but surely, the bloom buds on my Crown Imperial (Fritillaria imperialis) are opening up and it has now grown to almost one meter in height.


An interesting new wildflower has shown up in my front yard this Spring. A Siberian Bugloss or Heartleaf Brunnera (Brunnera macrophylla).


This little beauty, a Glory-of-the-Snow (Chionodoxa), growing in the middle of my lawn.


A close-up of a blooming Lenten Rose (Helleborus orientalis), captured in my backyard.


A group of yellow Crocuses coming to life in the afternoon sun.


A small group of violet Crocuses started to open up when the afternoon sun came out.

One of the beautiful Spring Snowflakes (Leucojum vernum) I discovered in my backyard this year.


Winter Aconites (Eranthis hyemalis) are popping up everywhere these days. Such a delightful sight 🙂
