A Ghost in the Machine?
When I took this photo of my Centaurea montana 'Amethyst in Snow' (a beautiful cornflower variety), I focussed my attention on the flower. I did only subliminally realize the details of the background - the hedge surrounding our garden. Later, when I watched the picture on my laptop for the first time, I was surprised how interesting, in my opinion, the bokeh looked like. So I decided to share  this photo - and here it is! ;)

Flamboyant
The purple flower balls of Persian Onion, hold on 3 ft. / 90 cm high stems, always give a great display in the evening. Those tall brothers of the common onion, such as Allium aflatuense 'Purple Sensation' and related bulbous species, are quite long-lived plants here in Germany, in spite of their origin from Central Asia and Iran. They like a quite moist and fertile soil in winter and spring, and somewhat drier conditions in summer and fall. Their leaves need sun but already use to wither when the plants are in bloom, so it is advantageous to grow them between other perennials that cover them from late spring on. ;)

Anemone II
This is another variety of the European wood anemone, Anemone nemorosa, with bluish colored flowers. This type is a good grower. :aww:

Anemone I
There are a lot of different varieties of the European wood anemone or windflower, Anemone nemorosa. Some of them are double, others do not show the common white flower color but pinkish or bluish tints. In the picture you see an amazing slightly pink variety growing in my garden. The cultivation is the same for all of them - beech grove conditions as for the normal form - but some varieties are good growers, others need more care. Anyway, it is a delight to collect all those neat little plants. :aww:

Prince of Orange
Tritonia crocata looks very much like a freesia, except for its exceptional orange color. Like many other bulbous plants, this species is native to the renosterveld in the southern Cape region in South Africa. It is easy to grow in a cool greenhouse (maybe also on the windowsill - but I haven't tried this yet), propagates well and flowers reliably every year in late spring. :aww:
