Me-Now-Views; Less Speak More Peek

Another bloom or a few?  Why not... these are all from my father's garden in Edinburgh with the exception of the giant 'barb.

This 'giant rhubarb' (Gunerra Tinctora) was once a garden ornamental... now something of a feral pest.  Impressive flowers though!

Above is something mother used to call 'paper flower'.  The yellow one is Lady's Mantel and the leaves used to be used for mastitis, hence the name.

Lantern grass and a wildflower permitted place; it is called Green Alkanet (pentaglottis sempervirens). ...okay, I had to search for that!

Over to you folks... have a great week.
