Colour Bomb

It was too good to last I suppose but the weather here in Bergen has returned to type today and the rain is coming down in sheets.  Hopefully it’s a temporary blip and we’ll get back to some sunshine soon but it definitely means no going out and taking photos.  So today’s post is another dip back into the archives and some more shots from the Jardin des Plantes in Paris.  As usual I have no idea what most of these flowers are so feel free to enlighten me if you know…

Some lovely blue Forget-me-Nots and some large pink thingies.
Some yellow Pansies.
Some kind of Poppy I believe.
Beauty in red and yellow.
A riot of pink and white.
More poppies at the Jardin des Plantes, Paris

  1. Great title… “Colour Bomb”! I get into trouble all the time when I just kind of guess what the names of flowers are…but here I go, entering the land where angels fear to tread. It looks to me like Iceland Poppies are a couple of your photos, geraniums possibly in the fifth photo, pansies, primrose in the fourth photo (maybe)…and the first photo…hmmm, the center looks like some sort of tulip. There you go! My guesses at all of your photos. They are beautiful!


    1. Thanks Carol. I love taking photos of flowers because of all the fantastic shapes and colours but I’ve generally got no idea what they are! Glad you liked the pics and the title. 😀


  2. I like this cheerful bounty of colour you have shared today. I love flowers too, but I am not good with their proper names either. It does not seem to interfere with the enjoyment and appreciation of their beauty though. Thank you for your visit and interest in my blog. I will look forward to checking back here to see Norway through your lens. Best Wishes!
