Easton Walled Garden 8/10

There are lots of varieties of plants and flowers at Easton, here is a trio of them in close up, I will leave it to the experts among you to identify them.

 

We went to Ely two weeks ago on the day after my friends funeral and took the opportunity to visit and photograph the beautiful cathedral. Isn't it always the way that some motorists have to spoil the pictures with their parking!!!

cannot identify them but the blooms are beautiful - each of them could dazzle an individual post, Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush, one or two other people have identified some of the flowers.
Lovely shots, Brian, I have to agree with Ayush.
I fully agree about the parking!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frank. I think the parking thing comes under the general heading of 'S**s law!'
Beautiful images, all, Brian!
I know the middle is a type of Columbine... we have yellow and red one's here, and the blue one is the state flower of Colorado! I think the purple is an Allium.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for that Elizabeth, I will accept your superior knowledge as to the species of the flowers.
Well, yes, Brian, but they also give scale...which is another way of just accepting it when it happens. (sigh)
Brian Walbey: I agree with the scale thought but I wouldn't be able to use either of these photos in a competition at my club. Fortunately I did manage to get a better one of the one with the white van, I managed to hide it behind a convenient cannon standing nearby!

I have lost most of my Aquilegia (middle picture) this year to a newly-identified fungus called downy mildew, which has been devastating to growers
Brian Walbey: I'm sure Maureen grows some of those, I'm hopeless with flowers and plants but just enjoy looking at them.

Lovely flowers, great cathedral - what more could you want.

Today Lisl & I are going to Wells Cathedral with Anne (Happenstance)
Brian Walbey: I agree Chris. Hope you have a good day out with Anne, I envy your visit to Wells, as you know I would like to visit there myself.

Beautiful flower portraits, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
Plenty of flowers then Brian.
Brian Walbey: One of those gardens with flowers in soem areas and shrubs etc.in others.
Lovely flower pics Brian.
Ely is a gem!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. When we lived at St.Ives (Cambs.) we made sure to visit Ely at least once a year, it is only a short drive between the two, it has changed considerably in the 30 odd years since we last visited.

J'aime beaucoup les formes de la fleur du milieu.
Brian Walbey: I think my wife, who's our gardener, is growing some of them in our garden.

Yes, Elizabeth is right, the left one is an Allium, the right one a sort of hydrangea, the middle one is a real beauty.
I am looking forward to your images fromEly.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine. I will post some images from Ely but it will be quite a while yet, I currently have all my postings sorted out until mid-September.
Allium, columbine and hydrangea are the three flowers. What a beautiful church!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary. The church is probably one of the top three finest cathedrals in the country and from this viewpoint one can't see just how big it is.

Ah! I know the one on the left; it is a Purple Flowery Thing. All fine shots, though. Ely Cathedral looks as though it should be in Tuscany, perhaps; it does not look English. I hope to visit it in December.
Brian Walbey: The flowers have all been named by others although there seems to be some disagreement as to what they are. Ely is a magnificent cathedral, there is a modest charge to go in but it is worth every penny.

Wonderful pictures of the flowers and that cathedral is fabulous, I know the car is not nice, but it does gives scale to it.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid. As I remarked to Ginnie the van being there stops me being able to consider the picture for use in my camera club unfortunately, but I did get another shot later on, keep watching smile
That middle one is quite a beauty!
Brian Walbey: My thoughts also Tom.
