It's Wednesday...can you bear another flower picture?

I have no idea what the name of this flower is, but my neighbour (yes the same one's that gave me the rocket flower plant) gave me this plant a few years ago and it keeps coming back year in and year out!  In case you haven't guess it, I'm not much of a gardener and if it wasn't for my kind neighbours passing plants over the fence, my garden would look pretty bare! LOL




Until next time...

Thanks for your beautiful pictures.

Just noted one of the comments as I was going to say it looks like a scabious although I wouldn't know which variety. It looks lovely though and a great colour. Even the little spiders look good.
Hope you have entered the springwatch photograph competition. I shall nag until you do.

A bit late, but yes it's a Scabiosa, but as a quilter/stitcher, I'm happier with it's common name of "pincushion flower'! Much more apt don't you think...?

Just such a gorgeous pink - now that's MY kind of flower!

Cathi said...

What a beautiful flower -- once again, your photography is wonderful!!

I am pretty sure it is a scabiosa also know as a Pin Cushion flower which is so appropriate for you!

This one looks other worldly when you get up close. That tiny aphid looks like an alien, returning to the mother ship. Lol!
