Every now and again I share a gallery of flowers linked only by their colour.

All except one are squares: Becky’s squarers may have spotted which it is after almost another month of squaring up. The Agapanthus in particular is viewed from many different perspectives and in all stages from bud to fading bloom.

I’m not sure whether the peony gains or loses from being cropped square, but decided to keep the background blooms. I wish there had been a bloom to fill the gap between, but that’s just being greedy.

  1. me again – back to try and decide which I love the most but struggling to decide between the magnolia, the Physocarpus opulifolius and the peony

  2. What beautiful photos! White flowers never seem real to me, and these all share that unreality, different as they all are. This brilliant peony is a showstopper, but I think I love best the portrait of the clematis, with that purple-blue nudging the white. There is something Victorian about it. All are beauties, though.

  3. What a lovely series. Nice shot of the swamp lily in particular. They’re a hard flower to photograph as the blooms can often appear as a tangled mess.

    Same with Agapanthus. Best to photograph when they’re half open I think and you’ve chosen just the right time of flowering to capture them.
