Not the best but all I can access at the moment.

St Johns Wort (and Bumble Bee).

More when I can get at the other 'pooter.

Seen on my way home from work this week.  Common Spotted if I'm reading the book correctly.

Can anyone tell me what these are ?  Growing alongside the canal in Edinburgh.  I've gone through both my flower identification books but failed to find a match.  They're about 30-60cm high.

I read that and wondered why nobody had told me I had my own botanic garden.  ;D

Flowers from Skiathos.

















This gardenia smelled wonderful.
