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. These have survived inauspicious conditions and neglect, although it turns out that a little watering doesn’t come amiss. They seem to like the admiration too!

  1. I will have to think about this. They do seem to have something of a busybody demeanor, interested in so many things all around. Glorious color, true or not!

    1. Perhaps the mistake I am making is to imagine they are all thinking the same thing. I would be happy to have a plant that was this colour, although the original which is more like a harebell blue is very evocative too.
