Crocosmia is such a graceful plant. It flowers for weeks and the leaves are almost as striking. This one is planted amongst some roses and they really seem to compliment each other.

Why do the pictures come out square when the lens is round??

I kow this as montbretia. It grows wild here along the roadsides and in waste areas, and is classed as a pest ! I took some home once years ago to plant in my garden and it took me several years to get rid of it :)

I really like it - and this is a great image of it - very realistic and it pops right ourt of the screen.
Well done :)

Just beautiful Joe. The colors are stunning. I bet it does make the green of the trees look better. Nice clarity. Excellent post.

oh yes Joe! I love these flowers - I have a bit patch of them in my garden just outside the window next to me - so pretty and yes they flower for weeks! I like the 'Lucifer in the evening' name - never heard that one before. Beautifully captured!
