A beautiful white and purple Cornflower or Bachelor's Buttons, an early spring flower.
One of several tiny Primula that also bloom in early spring in our garden.
My favourite bright red Dianthus or pink in the scree garden.
A bright pink Transcanthia or spiderwort.
A bright pink Monarda, also known as bee balm or bergamot.
Full credit goes to the Chief Horticulturalist here, who I turned to to find out what each of these was officially called. I'm linking them to Macro Monday and Today's Flowers. In any case, when you look more closely at these, thanks to my camera, you just see the beauty even more.
And tonight we're heading for the huge Priceville fireworks display nearby. I'm going to try some fireworks photos for Canada Day.
