An Inspection Of Campanulas

Campanula flowers

Posting this picture, I so sorely felt the need for more collective nouns for flowers that I was forced to invent one. ‘A tumble’ was my first thought, but then I remembered that the best collective nouns are more quirky.

As they all seemed to be looking in different directions, I chose ‘an inspection’, but it could just as easily have been ‘an introspection’. You might have a better idea – if so let me know!

The colour is not true to life – too purple – but I liked the petals’ iridescence and the way light is falling.

    1. Perhaps this is why there are so many collective nouns for the same thing. I wonder if there was a time when they were invented – a kind of literary craze?
