Today's Flowers #51

Ripening seed heads of Nigella damascena (Love-in-a-mist) This is an annual that self-seeds.

These heads are turning brown, soon to release their seeds. The pods are often cut and used in flower arrangements.

Close-up of a seed pod. If you shake the pod you can hear the seeds rattling inside.

Scented-leaf geranium: the flowers are usually quite insignificant as the plants are prized for the scent from their leaves. This one has an orange scent.

I think the flowers are worthy of notice . . .

Thank you to Luiz Santilli Jr., Denise Gullickson, Laerte Pupo and Valkyrien for hosting this meme.

  1. Hello, Janice

    Thanks for visiting my last week's Today's Flowers post. I appreciate your coming by and leaving a comment. I'll have more flowers up on Sunday, August 2, for my Week 51 post.

    Your photos of the seed pods are great, and the scented geranium is lovely. Thanks for sharing your photos.

    P.S. I scanned some of your previous posts (all I had time to do this morning, but I'll be back). Your Dalmatian dogs are beautiful.

  2. Your geraniums are lovely, i like delicate looking flowers.

  3. Sorry I am a bit late commenting on these but your photos are wonderful! Those seed pods are fascinating and your scented-leaf geranium is delightful, lovely photos. Thank you very much for sharing them with Today's Flowers.

  4. Thank you folks - I really don't know quite what happened here. I thought it was a bit early for 'Today's Flowers' but the prompt came up and I blundered straight on . . . (blushes)
    Anyway, thank you for visiting . . . :-)

  5. I love Love in the mist, thinks: must scatter some more seeds. Scented Geraneums I als like, I have the rose scented one. Nice shots.
