Flower Fotos

The garden at the moment is a riot of colour! My Dad has outdone himself with the range of plants we have on our patio, and I am rapidly filling up the memory space on the laptop with photos of them all. Here are a few of my latest photos!

Our second phase of lilies are starting to come out. Whereas the previous ones were orange, the new ones are white and pink which is a lovely contrast!


Straw flowers have a really strange texture as the petals are crispy- almost like they have been dried out. The layers are lovely though and when they are finished, the colour changes and lots of little fluffy seeds appear!

I really loved the delicate crispness of this flower. The petals look like they are floating underwater like tentacles or seaweed, and though they have dried out, the vivid colour is still just about there although slightly diluted.

Even my Grandad is enjoying his garden at the moment, being especially excited about a plant which has just flowered for the first time in 40 years!!!

Love the little spikes on the sides of the petals, and the way there appear to be different kinds of flower inside the one, some are spiky and triangular, others are circular buds.
