Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

Lovely flower shots. Are either of those top two Love in a Mist or nigelia? Neat. Some feedback is that your site seems to load quite slowly, but it may be my connection.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Sara, You know what, I don't know their names but will check it out this week when I am at the gardens. It's been a little slower due to the new blogger template. Thanks

Nina said...

Just beautiful! The third one is my favorite!

Rosie @ Centre of Interest said...

Those are lovely macros - I am sure that the first 2 are Nigella as I recognise the distinctive foliage but I have not got a clue what the 3rd one is.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Nina, thanks so much for visiting.

Rosie, Thanks so much for that. I Googled it and you are correct. I had no idea of the names. Thanks for the info.
