Beauty Botanical Photoblogging

5 comments May 4th, 2006at 11:07pm Posted by Eli

Okay, one last attempts at some beauty shots from the botanical gardens.

Please bear in mind that I have no idea what I’m talking about.


Just so we’re clear on this, I have no idea what any flowers are called. Tulips, maybe? Idunno. I’ll just call them “Purple Flower Thingies.”


I think someone may have said these are forget-me-nots, but I… well…


Baby ferns! I think.


Some kind of, um, white flowers…

Are ya feelin’ educated yet?

    The white flowers are Stars of Bethlehem, I think. Are there several flowers on one stalk?

    Honestly, I don’t remember. Probably?

    I just looked at the enlarged photo. It’s star of bethlehem. In the photo, you can see the stems of the two flowers link up.

    Hope this helps!

    Sadly, I had the purple ones at the top in my garden. Well, really Dad’s garden, and I have no idea what they are.

    The top ones are almost certainly tulips. They’re very pretty!
