  1. Påminner starkt om sommarblommor man odlar för att plocka och hänga på tork. Vackra bilder!

    1. Tack Ulla. Detta är en australiensisk blomma, jag är inte säker på om det skulle växa utomhus här på norra halvklotet. Jag tog dessa bilder i stora växthus vid National Botanical Gardens här i Wales.

  2. Vakkert og jeg tror nok ikke de ville trives ute, her heller.
    Den nederste er utrolig vakker.
    Ha en fin kveld.

    1. Thanks Mormor :-)). I think it would only be possible to grow them here in the North, in glasshouses (sorry, my Norwegian isn't very good!!)

  6. Hard to choose one, since each of your beautiful captures have their own "personality." This flower takes me to childhood. My mother used to call them dried flowers:)

  8. I love these three flowers. They are really beautiful. My favourite is the bottom one. They are very common in Portugal. We use them for arrangements as they last long.

    1. Thanks Belita :-)) I have never seen them growing outdoors here in the UK. I only see them in the Great Glasshouse at the National Botanical Gardens.
