  1. The close ups reveal a whole new way of seeing a flower. Thank you for the experience.

  2. Loving the photos on your blog, I’ve scrolled down quite a way. I’m intrigued by Penstemon ‘Dark Towers’ too, the stems and foliage look almost black! I shall be on the lookout for one of those.
    And many thanks for the link!
