Cupid's Dart

By CaroleS
Catananche Caerulea 'Cupid's Dart - these are cornflower-like and such a gorgeous lilac-blue, the buds have a silvery look.
Just from a packet of seed I put in the garden last year.

A milestone today, the bathroom is finished! After many trials and tribulations it is fully operational, it has been such hard work.

Thank you all for your kind comments and votes - hopefully back to normal voting and commenting soon, just having a bit of a tidy up in the house now and some well earned days out with the cameras.

A real beauty, and I like the addition of the bud. In fact, I think I like the bud more than the flowerSad!

Beautiful flower and the open bloom with it's neighbouring bud affording you a fine image, the icing on the photographic cake being the OOF third member stage left.
A floral image I'd be proud to have in my portfolio, Carole.
R. heck with the house: get out there, gal, and capture many more shots like this.....WinkWinkWink
