Hi all, and once again, thank you so much for your kind comments, Votes and mod's on my 'Deserted In Paradise' , very much appreciated. And this is just a thought, I wonder if there's a Travel Agents in Paradise ???
Anyway, just for a change, I'm uploading a Plant which I think is a Herb, as I spotted it in a Herb Garden in Rochester, but I'm not too sure really. Hopefully someone will be able to identify it for me Smile
Looks like I'll be starting to decorate the living Room this Weekend, so I could be even more hit and miss than I have been lately.Sad

All the best to all,

John Smile

Gosh......Don't recognize this one...
I love its colours and will have to wait and see if someone can identify it.

I only recognise this particular plant as a weed since I spend quite a lot of time pulling them out

I wish I could identify it - that mix of pink and green is so beautiful.
Nice composition - not an easy plant to get a strong image from, I suspect, very regular up and down the stem.

Thanks Barbara, and I guess none of those Weeds with the Seeds, had a name Tag attached Nathan? Smile
And yes you're right Moira, I never did achieve the dof that I REALLY wanted Smile

I can't identify it either, but someone will know, I'm sure.

I really like the composition on this one John, they are very tall plants and difficult to photograph, Lovely colour, lighting and dof.
I understand they are called "Morning Candle" (I don't think they are edible)!

No I.D. from me, of course; but i do like the mix and contrast of colours, a rather beautiful and I think unusual palette. a fine study of the shapes too.
Don't get too slapdash with the decorating Wink

Acanthus spinosus... or bear's breeches, John. Delicate colouring and sharp (literally) detail.

Looks like 'Morning Candle' aka 'Bear's Breeches' technical name Acanthus Spinosus. You should be able to tell from the image here as it shows the leaves :-

Whatever, it is a beautifully composed image with gorgeous subtle colour.

Definitely Acanthus John, I have a larger form of them at the back of a border. They do have lovely colour tones which you have captured so well.
