    Beautiful capture – I have these growing on my garden wall – It’s nice to be able to put a name to them.

  • Thank you very much Duncan, I’ve always loved those campanula and they bloom for a few months. There are 3 different types of campanula, all different heights, these are the smaller ones. Take care :)

  • Hi Jens, thx for such a great comment on my campanulas. They are one of my favourite flowers. They are no care, they grow easely and they bloom for a couple of months. Take care :)
