These lovely vibrant flowers were growing over a stone wall in front of a cottage in Donegal, Ireland. I am not sure what they are called.

    Dear Joyce; these flowers look very, very lovely indeed. And their ability to grow over a stone wall is even more impressive and amazing to me… the fact that they can do that and survive well…… I could not really decipher form the image whether a single flower had four or five leaves. If they had four leaves, and were hanging over the stone wall, then they are most probably called Aubretia, which usually come in a lovely shade of purple, with a little round center of dark red and a yellow small flower in the center of that. Aubretia also can come in other colours like blue and yellow, but the dominant species is purple. However, if the flower had five leaves to it, then it is most probably a forget-me-not, or a mouse ear flower. These also come in different colours and shades of purple, blue and sometimes white, with a small yellowish center. Whatever they are, they look really lovely. Now how about that from someone who does not know how to photograph flowers? From your “very tired; been up for more than 36 hours and ready for bed” friend…. Hany

  • My dear Hany…………………I am delighted to hear from you……………now go to your bed and get some rest……………I was beginning to be concerned that you had fallen into a deep ditch somewhere in the wilds of Ontario……………………I am still up as I cannot breath with sinus and allergy problems………………..I am ready for the hills and the bloody birds are singing………………ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…………….sleep well my desert prince and I will chat soon…………………….hugs from your bird listening friend in Ireland………………….x
