You really know where to find beautiful things and create beautiful compositions in your photos. :D

That's very kind. :)

I took cuttings of roots of the aconitum from my granny's garden, the Hesperantha used to be known as Kaffir Lily and I found them growing (feral) near a ruined cottage.

The mixture would be impossible in nature and is just a random small garden pleasure.

Wow, that's interesting. So it turns out that you create such beauty on your own. I know so little about flowers. :blushes:

Sticking them in the ground is really the limit of my creativity.
They are wonderful plants that are not so easy to buy but multiply naturally in old gardens.

If your skills were limited only to that, you couldn't take such creative and impressive photos as these to share with us. :)

Thank you very much.
I was afraid it was yet another one of my boring ones.
I like the dark green cut leaves of this old poisonous European herb.
Taking a South African red wild flower and planting it underneath seemed like a good idea.
