Many years ago I painted. Then I realised that I did better at photography than painting – and that has been my medium of expression ever since.
A great image………….. *
Thanks so much, Albert.

A terrific capture of this lovely plant
Thanks Kala. I had terrible problems with the wind, so that’s nice to hear!
Very beautiful flowers!
Many thanks, Ana.
Great Title for these stunning flowers Bette ,love the colour, x
The title is actually the common name of the flowers – I guess I didn’t make that clear :) Thanks for your kind words, Pauline. x
Beautiful, vivid color!
They make a very vivid carpet of colour, it is true. Thanks Lynn.
Their rich color must make for a beautiful display from the distance!
It does.There were several large patches drawing attention in the largely flowerless summer gardens.
There’s something about purple…! This lovely image makes me feel happy on this overcast day…hopeful too.
Yes, there are many of us who favour purple! We are sweltering in a prolonged heatwave and it’s hard to imagine what cold feels like,but I’m glad my purple flowers have a therapeutic effect on you!
