Hidcote flowers 2

I have no idea what this plant is but I love the colour and the way it seems to glow.

The simplicity and minimal mix of colors is beautiful.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Red Pen.

Ohhhh! The colors are FABULOUS, Bill! A total Likey for me (though I would have been tempted to clone out the lower left-hand petals).
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ginnie. You are right I should have done, but until you mentioned them I hadn't noticed them!

I have no idea what it is either, Bill.
But, it is quite striking, and your fine picture shows it off well.
Bill Phillips: Thanks very much Ray.

Gorgeous close up Bill, love the light.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Aussie. The light was just right.
Mmmmm...this is a departure for you Bill: it's always fun & interesting to experiment
Bill Phillips: Actually Chris I take a lot of flower pictures, most of them of indifferent quality! I suppose the departure is no twiddle or bordertongue

Yes, a wonderful plant-pic with the different shades of green (also in the bachground)and the structure of a royal crown, Queenscrown could be the name of this plant!
Bill Phillips: Queenscrown...that's a great name for it Philinesmile
i love it too bill smile
Bill Phillips: Thanks Doc. Looks like it could be an Astrantia. (New one on me)

Very delicate shades of green - beautiful. I think it might be a variety of Astrantia.
Ingrid
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ingrid. I've looked it up and I think you are right.
No idea of what it could be Bill, but this is a gorgeous plant. You captured it very well!
Bill Phillips: Ingrid thinks it is an Astrantia and I think she's right. It is a delightful plant.
I've never seen one nor even heard of one but, Bill, this is a beautiful photo. Very well lighted.
Bill Phillips: It's a new one on me too but it is a lovely plant.

I apologise, Lord Phillips of Lardiehills. It was a case of mischeavous identity. btw Have you noticed (on his blog) how Tiff is looking exactly like a pairt of cats eyes in the road? - you know the sort of thing.
Bill Phillips: Apology accepted Sir Chadwick! Does he not like marmite perhaps?
Such a nice simple plant picture Bill, and what a beautiful plant it is as well. Love the OOF background but I go with Ginnie on the left hand bottom corner.
Bill Phillips: I know, it is amazing what you miss! I hadn't noticed it until she commented!

There's only one word for this picture, Bill - GORGEOUS
Bill Phillips: I can only reply with two words...Thank yousmile
Delightful Bill....
richard
Bill Phillips: Thanks Richard
Yes I DO like Marmite: and I DO NOT THINK I look like a cat's eye!
Bill Phillips: 1. Good
2. Nor do I but Sir Chadwick seems to.
well balanced shot, Bill. The tones & DOF all compliment perfectly.
Bill Phillips: Thanks very much Dave
Une superbe photo, la plante est surprenante, les tons sont doux, bravo !

beautiful shot Bill and worthy of a print i feelsmile
Bill Phillips: Thanks Tim. Perhaps I will when I get a decent printer!
I saw these at Cerner house recently and they are... I don't know eithersad
I like the mono green and dof.
Bill Phillips: Ingrid thinks they are Astrantia and I think she is probably right!
I think it's a Hellebore Bill, not sure which one. Cracking shot.
