A Flowery Display of Colours

IMG_3714
This richness in colours, exquisiteness and nature's creative splendour is brought to you from the Bergianska Botanical Garden in Stockholm, where many exotic (for our latitudes) flowers and plants are in bloom right now. A rather perfect way to spend a couple of hours when winter still has us northeners in its cold, cold grip.

Enjoy and have a lovely February 14th, however you chose to spend it ~

Those are great pictures, Pia.

I'm dabbling in photography myself so am very keen to see the techniques etc. of others.

Cheers

This is a wonderfully exotic bundel of flowers.With some I am quite familiar they are like old friends. I am mostly intrigued with the Manuka teatree from New Zealand. I used to grow these little beauties in different colours and they always gave me a hard time, affected by grubs weaving all the branches together and munching away.

Thanks, Felis!

Glad you find them uplifting and delightful, Dora!

Thanks, PM, pleased you enjoyed. Yes, studying others and their work, be it photography, writing, painting or anything else is really both inspirational as well as educational.

Thanks, Titania. I didn't even know there were tea tree amongst these photos, I mostly kept snapping away in the greenhouse:) Now I know, and it was a very picturesque shrub and the deep red nuance is lovely I think.
