  1. Oh my gosh! Gorgeous! And I know some of them. The gorgeous pure white one is perhaps a Dahlia. The round purple ones at the bottom are Aliums, also Foxgloves!

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
