Picture This #237 ~ Flowers

Sorry I'm rather late posting this week, and also late putting up the banner, but I've been visiting my folks for a few days, as I missed seeing them at Christmas due to my illness. 

Many thanks to Heidi for hosting this week's challenge. A wonderful theme she's chosen.....I'm surprised I didn't think of this theme myself, considering I take more flower shots than just about anything else!!! LOL.

Here are mine, all taken at Upton Castle Gardens last year on the same day:

1) Clematis 'Nelly Moser'
Clematis 'Nelly Moser' 2

2) Geranium 'Renardii'
Geranium Renardii 1

3) Nigella 'Love In The Mist'
Nigella 1

4) Red Peony
Radiance 1


  1. So glad you were able to have a nice visit with your folks. Splendid banner you have chosen.

    Love the shadows on your first shot, beautiful. The detail in the geranium is wonderful. "Love in the Mist" is a wonderful name for a flower. And I can almost smell the gorgeous red peony, my favorite.

  2. Exquisite purples and whites in the first and dark-blues and whites in the second.
    Beautiful pastel blue and vivid red.

  3. Wow.... what a surprise, Mitch! Thanks so very much.... had never expected to see one of my photos as this week's banner!
    Hope you had a nice time spent together with your folks.
    Four beautiful and exquisite flowers.Love those corollas and colours. My favourite is the Red Peony. Its corolla would make a nice cup...

  4. Love the detail in all of these! Such great color and clarity. The clematis is my favorite.

  5. oh wow wonderful Mitch and I am glad you like my theme --

    Belita your banner is wonderful

  6. Love the all. I had a Nelly Moser once, but it sort of disappeared. Love the Nigella, must see if I can find some here. Peonies are thankful and always a good show. great shots.

  7. These macros of blossoms are divine!!

  8. Gorgeous! I love them all. I have a few pics of Nigella. It's such a magical looking flower. It's hard to pick a favorite out of these, but I like the Clematis the best. The light, the detail, everything is perfect!
