Lavender and pink

Dove Cottage garden again - lavender and pink make such a pretty colour combination. I don't actually know what the pink one is, but it was pretty. I make no apologies for filling my blog this week with flowers. I'm seeking some inner peace... just having one of those weeks...!

"Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things..... And the God of peace will be with you." Philippians 4:8

  1. I know the flowers are beautiful anyway but, you have to compose the photograph well to capture that beauty. You have a real 'eye' for this. The results are delightful.

  2. I must confess I have never been in Dove Cottage Garden Centre although I knew it was there as someone else I knew had recommended it. I will go now it has received your recommendation as well (and the Travellers' is just up the road!).

  11. The pink flowers are granny bonnets ot twinspurs - or "Diascia" - a flower that is indigenous to South Africa. It is interesing in that it produces oil, not nectar, in the two spurs that give it one of its common names, and oil-collecting bees are the pollinators in the wild.
