Here are a few of the flowers in my garden at the moment.
Vers.1: Rhododendron.
Vers.2 : Peony.
Vers.3 : Welsh Poppy.
Vers.4 : Huami.

I found Vers. 4 growing by my greenhouse door, I can't identify it, but I thought it deserved an appearance, so if you can translate the Chinese name, I'd be grateful.

Thank you for looking.
Brian

V4 looks to be some kind of salvia---- These are lovely images

Very disturbing to hear that you cannot fly your national flag always!

V3 is my favourite of this fine set, love the vibrant yellow colour and way that you've caught it in direct sunlight. When I saw the title I feared we were going to be treated to some shots of your undergarments hanging on a clothes line!Wink

Hi Brian Smile

Thanks so much for sharing these beauts of yours with us!

I love rhododendrons. We don't get 'em over here but I was blown away by them when I was in Leeds. There was a back route from Lupton Flats (university flats where I lived, about 1.5 miles from the uni) to my uni. On the way, I found some rhododendron bushes/trees and was like wwwow. On the way back from uni, I nicked a head of flowers and put them in some water and kept them on my windowsill in my room. But shhh...don't tell anyone!

Hmmmm Brian, if you found V4 growing by the greenhouse door and you didn't put it there, that fits my definition of a weed, colourful though it is! Smile All kidding aside,, a nice set of images, I'm sure your garden is looking a treat, as it always is, I'm hoping to see some signs of life here soon, the only thing showing so far are a few pansies.
Rgds., Jim

Coming to see your garden,Brian. How are you now? Beautiful colour.. I like v3&4 best, V4's clarity is superb, and beautiful blue...
Ahhh....I did get my dictionary out when I read that you wanted Chinese name.. I thought that was what I could do best.. well, not really...Grin but I leant something new...
I've never known what 杜鹃花 looked like until now, when I found out it was Rhododendron at this very moment.杜鹃 is cuckoo,花 is flower. So, in Chinese, it's cuckoo flower..I vaguelly remembered a kind of very sad tale, that the cuckoo called, called and called until it coughed blood.. So this red colour is symbolized as cuckoo's blood..
牡丹 is Peony.. a lot of themGrin there is a Peony Festival in Luoyang, central China each year, but I've never been there..They are all colours. beautiful indeed.
威尔士罂粟, is Welsh poppy. I don't know what the Chinese ones look likeGrin 威尔士: is Welsh;罂粟 is poppy.
I'm not sure about Huami. Sorry then..
Hope that you are well... my best wishes to you, Brain.
Jasmine

Such lovely flowers Jim but of all of them I find I like Version 4 the best it is so detailed and a wonderful shade of blue. It is called Ajuga or Bugleweeds. It can become invasive but I like it because my son would go round saying Ajuga, Ajuga like some witch doctorSmileSmileSmileSmile xxx
