Campanula

Small Campanula
Stretch their faces to the sky
Pink, lilac, purple

delicate petals

and all the different shades

mingle together

creating dreamy hues
in which to drown my eyes.

  1. Gorgeous photography and flower. It is one of my favorite flowers that I have in my white garden. Here in California with the drought and water restrictions it is extremely difficult to keep the garden looking good. Thanks for a beautiful photo of this lovely delicate flower.

    1. Thank you for visiting and for your kind comment, Mary. I imagine that a drought situation is a very difficult one indeed for gardens. We have had prolonged heat waves in Switzerland this year and plants and even trees have been suffering. Luckily, my plants are all in pots on my balcony and they don't suffer too much.

  3. Such beautiful blues, almost lilac - love the depth of field you have achieved really lovely. My campanula are over now they seed around freely and I always look forward to their arrival every year.

    1. Hi Mary, these were taken with my regular SLR and macro lens. It's true that all the shades of blue and lavender are very calming.

  14. Gina, I had four of these plants growing in my window boxes and the tiny blooms were gorgeous. I've cut them down hoping to get more flowers, but it may be too late in the season!

  15. Hi Sandra, these are dreamy images that make me want to want to sit in the garden and dream.....I usually have some in my garden because here they are hardy little flowers but this summer I didn't get to plant any because of my knee. I certainly hope to have them in my garden next summer. Did you use your Fuji for these?

  18. My Campanula are also blooming - mine are deep purple and white, the larger variety. I think they might be ringing in cooler weather here in the mountains. Your photos are dreamy and magical.
