Wow so many gorgeous flowers! My favorite would have to be the purple rose. I prefer the deep purple colored ones. Now I feel like I want to contribute a picture:

Here are a few that I took last year on my phone.

I couldn't find my other pictures
I reckon i've put them on CD somewhere and forgot... but these will do just fine.
Sorry they're a little on the large side but I haven't got the hang of resizing yet...

Looking at the pictures on this thread is making me think I seriously need to get myself a decent camera.

Dahlia with a bee doing his thang.


One of my favourites.
Aconitum Monkshood (not to be eaten! :lol



Another one of my favourites.
Lupin.




Wild Orchids lurking amongst the grass. Blink and you'll miss these little beauties.



Needs no introduction.



Digitalis (Foxglove)


I'm going to finish with one that everyone knows. The Pansy.

Once again, great thread, nice one.

What a beautiful thread!

I'll share some Texas Bluebonnets with you. They smell as pretty as they look.

Yes, all my life, they are the most beautiful aspect of earth since its so very low frequency a planet, this still one of the greatest messages in the living library to the Goodness of Family above. And I don't want to see any destruction of our beautiful planet, nor harm to any person, plant, animal. Its time to caretake the garden and chain the pitbulls up, and use the hidden technologies in positive ways instead of destructive and to clean the toxins.

Thank you all for your contribution to this colorful thread!


What I especially love is to be in a poppy field (There are lots of these in France and Spain):



or in a lavander field (South France):



Or even in a rapeseed field:



It reminds me my childhood and these wonderful days where everything seemed possible...

I love Monkshood, I grow them in my garden, but I have had to move into a flat for my job, and I will have no garden once my house is sold...
Though, I now have a grave yard which belongs to a former priory to tend to, so I am hoping to transplant them there...which would be much more fitting. Perfect shade of blue, and they press and dry really well, and do look like medieval monk's hoods.

The first one seems to be a Dahlia.
For the second, well, maybe forget-me-not, not sure 'cause of the color though!

An absolute pleasure to see such beauty in spite of a very ugly Monday that has been marred by school shootings, rising gas prices, and the continuing fiasco called the GOP debates. We needed that lovely ray of sunshine, OP! Thanks a lot!

The other ones I am not sure of, but that is an Osteospermum, or South African Daisy. I like those.

I love a thread that isn't about gloom and doom AND is beautiful! S&F for you!

We have daffodils and crocus blooming here in Kentucky. I love this time of year!

Another wonderful thread, thankyou EA!

I was fascinated recently by learning the hidden 'colours' of flowers! To us a flower may look a simple colour, but hidden in ultraviolet wavelengths are special patterns designed to attract certain insects and birds.

Note the difference here :-




It is well known that many bees and birds follow UV-reflecting nectar guides on flowers which lead them to the most nectar-rich part of the plant. These animals depend on UV colors to guide them to their food source, yet research done within the last few years has revealed that many animals use UV colors for much more than just finding the sweetest spot on a flower.

Also, you might enjoy the BBC series "How to grow a planet" (in particular episode 2 which deals in flowers, doesn't seem available on youtube in full though I'm afraid). But this clip shows move on the UV "view" of the world insects get of flowers. Fascinating stuff!
