    I’m never sure whether to comment on a Silent Sunday! I love silently being with my own plants. However, I think the photo deserves recognition. I love how you’ve not only captured the colour of these beautiful blooms, but also their texture. If I imagine myself touching those delicate petals, I can feel them.

      Comments are always welcome. I liked the texture of the geraniums too – the slightly crumpled look as if they were silk ballgowns that had been packed away somewhere.

    I awoke this morning to my first yellow evening primrose blooming. Last year I applied too much natural fertilizer made from sewage to keep deer away and the plants produced lots of green but very few flowers. I was very excited to see my old friends returned.

      The bud (and warm background blur) is Rosa mutabilis. This little vignette was the highlight of the garden we were visiting, for me.

      Both were individually unassuming plants but together they are bold and bright. Even the yellowing leaves seem to translate to gold highlights.
