March Spiky Squares: Bluebell Cottage Gardens

Blue thistle-like flowers in a garden
Echinops at Bluebell Cottage Gardens

It’s March and Becky from The Life Of B is hosting a new, month-long challenge. This month’s topic is spiky and the only real rule is that the main picture must be a square shape. Please join in if you’re feeling at all spiky!

  1. Love echinops! Planted three last year but they didn’t grow very much, have noticed them starting to grow again now so I am hoping that this year they will flower!

  2. Echinops! I’ve never heard of them! They’re real eye-catchers — what a blue! What’s the blue-lavender plant in the background that looks sort of like lavender but more like a fountain?

  3. Beautiful photo, and I never knew their name was echinops . . . third thing I have learnt this morning thanks to all this spikiness 😀

    1. We have a month of education ahead of us! Thanks for hosting. I wanted to get one out day 1, to help with awareness, but it was a challenge. It’s not as easy as we might expect to crop spiky things square. I’ve ruled out quite a few because I liked them better narrow or wide!
