Apologies to Rolf Harris for pinching his bye-line....but CAN you tell what it is yet ??????

It's the flower-head of Nigella !, after the petals have fallen off, & the seed pod is swelling in size...........

Also known as 'Love-in-a-mist'.....the seed pod should get larger than this, then crispen up & go brown, before
it scatters it's seeds............so I may have another shot to do when it has matured fully !!!!


Many thanks for all the responses to 'Blea Tarn Vista'.....glad you liked it !!!!

Although I often couldn't tell what it was when Rolf Harris did his drawings, I knew this one straight away, Keith.
The seed pod amid all those lacy bracts looks somewhat alien, and I'm not surprised that it's sometimes called devil-in-the-bush, although love-in-a-mist is so much more charming.

Lovely love in a mist, really like the greenness of it, excellent use of light and great contrast. These are supposed to grow like weeds but not in our garden unfortunately. Well done.

I have some newly sown in our garden and have been waiting and waiting and waiting for them to flower. The buds are there but no sunshine when it is needed! Great detailed shot, and that seed pod will probably gain a richer colour before it bursts. Well captured.

So that's what Nigella looks like. As has already been noted, I thought she was buxom and busty, not spikey and green ......... Wink
