Some Close Up Photographs

This cream dogwood is flowering wonderfully this spring and does not seem too bothered by the winds we have been having.  The lower picture is of the stamens of a magnolia.

More Blue Flowers

Anna asked about the blue rhododendron which is flowering well this year.  The lower picture is of what I understand to be a Japanese Iris.  This image shows just a single flower but they flower on stems with a number of flowers coming out over a period of a week or more.

Blue Flowers of Spring

My garden has a number of blue flowering plants which mostly seem to come out at this time of year.  There is even a blue rhododendron coming into flower just outside my window.

Much Traveled Pots

This cylinder of mine and the tear drop vase of Estelle's have just been returned from the North-East of the United States.  They were sent there for an exhibition some time ago and, thanks to the efforts of friends and others, were returned in perfect condition after travelling such a long way. I am really glad to have them back.
