The first of very many that are beginning to bloom in my garden.
I've got several different colours from this pale pink through to a quite deep mauve.
Each year, as the plants die, I shake out the seeds and scatter them myself. Consequently, each year I get a larger crop than I did the previous year, with seeds to spare. I've got a pile of them in an envelope.
This all began some years ago, with some seeds that my Mum gave me which had come from plants that are growing on her Mum's (my Nan's) grave.
Fuji S5700. Set to 'macro.' Tweaked in CS6 to increase contrast and sharpened, although I missed the focal point in the taking.
