THE CHANGES ONE GOES THROUGH TO GET TO THIS.....

One of the more unusual flowers in our garden at this time of the year is the Cephalaria Gigantea, an old favourite which we have been growing for many years. I went to take a photograph and noticed just how many stages this plant has to go through before it is in full flower.


Amazing what you can see through the camera lens, would never have noticed this before…..
