not my usual flowers, I wanted something different so on one of my rare days of being able to go into the town, I went to the indoor market and got a few things that were a little different for a change! I also borrowed a daylight lamp from my friend and neighbour, and boy, what a difference that made! Using natural daylight was definately a nonstarter, the day was the darkest, greyest we had had through all that awful weather we had! Anyway, had a bit of a mess about in ps .... and this is the result. I haven't posted it before as I am so unsure of it ... maybe this is what is described as being out of the comfort zone a little bit? h'm .. well time will tell! Thanks to all for all the great comments on my out of the blue shot, surprised it did that well! Thanks for stopping by and looking please feel free to give your advice and tips ... I would love your opinions on this! Take care all!
I forgot to add this bit of info ....
Time : They flower in July, and are ripe in the end of August.
Government and virtues : It is an herb of Venus. Dioscorides saith, That the root bruised and boiled in wine, till it be thick, and kept in a brazen vessel, and after spread as a salve, and applied to the fundament, doth heal the cleft thereof, cankers and fistulas therein, also takes away warts and wens. The juice of the leaves dropped into the ears, kills worms in them. The distilled water of the leaves dropped into the eyes, takes away redness and mists in them that hinder the sight, and is often used by women to preserve their beauty, and to take away redness and inflammations, and all other heat or discolourings
It all sounds a tad yukky to me! LOL!
