Gorgeous shots of the flowers, Jo! I think we both went after the same flowers :-) I have some too, but your blue one is fantastic!

Some of those flowers look like sea creatures - beautiful ones.

All your flower pictures are wonderful and really like the Blue Himalayan Poppy. The blue petals have a nice contrasting color to the anthers.

What an exquisite collection of beauties you've given us today, Jo. They are spectacular, just like you! I haven't left the house since I got home from the hospital! My camera is wondering what's wrong.
