A Week Of Flowers – Day One

‘Pride of Gibraltar’ Hummingbird Cerinthe

For a second year Cathy of Words and Herbs is hosting a Week of Flowers, inviting everyone to share some “extra colour and cheer” by posting one flowery photo a day, for a week.

During 2021 I have mostly posted floral designs and butterfly journal entries so will omit those images this week. I started growing Cerinthe two years ago. It reseeded generously the first year, not so much this year, but I have saved some seeds. I love its rich blue-green palette.

For an uplifting color boost this week visit Cathy in Bavaria at Words and Herbs to see florals from around the globe.

    Oh how I love Cerinthe! So wonderful to see your pics. My experience is similar, I still have it – but it likes to put itself if places where I’d be inclined to weed it out.

      I’m late to the party on planting cerinthe but I don’t think it’s very well known in my state of North Carolina. I love it too! I hope mine will sow itself around!

    They are very pretty flowers, but the foliage is what attracts me most to them I think. I have seen them on several blogs this year and have finally bought some seed for trying them out myself. 😃 Thanks for sharing and joining in Susie. 🤗
