Hepworth Wildflower Garden

By TrevBatWCC    
Following on from my previous upload, 'Monolith', in the same area of the garden alongside the Hepworth Wakefield, here's a selection of the wildflowers and plants.
Knowing next to nowt about flowers or plants (one reason I don't do flower photography!), I've used the plant identifier app on my iPhone and taken screen images. The lead I thought was lavender, but it's identified it has Russian Sage (though lavender has a strong smell, my nose doesn't work very well!). V1 & V2 are Purple Coneflower (a bit past their best!), V3 Black Sage, and V4 Prairie Blazing Star. I stand corrected if these are wrongly named 😬
The textile sculpture in my previous upload can be seen top-left in the background of the lead image.

Many thanks to Dave (HobbitDave) for his User Award on my previous upload, Monolith , most appreciated 🏆👍

Raw images processed in Nikon Capture NX-D, tweaked in Nik Collection's plugins and Photoshop Elements 2020.

Thanks again to everyone for your vote & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging 😃👍

I thought it was lavender when I first saw the image so I stand corrected! Lovely set Trev, I particularly like V3.

A lovely display of your Russian sage...an oxymoron perhaps?
