    1. It is an amazing blue Dominique. It is native to Chile and is rather like a Crocus but blue. Thought to be extinct in the wild for decades until rediscovered by accident in 2001. The whole remaining population is on an area smaller than a football pitch. Thankfully it is well established in cultivation. The amount of blue varies. Some varieties are nearly white with just a blue rim.

  1. The last one is very like an Australian native called Boronia. (I am not good with Latin names). The brown one is known for its beautiful fragrance, even to the point of a perfume named after it (which was rubbish). All beautiful and well shot here. Glad to see some colour in your world.
