A Creepy Kind Of Love

Those of you who guessed flowers are right! The first time we saw these, Phil thought for sure they were weeds. They are in fact the weediest flowers I have ever seen! Their name is Love-In-A-Mist, and they are a member of the buttercup family. They have been cultivated for over 400 years, and they will grow up to two feet tall! The names of the flower colors are really a scream...Miss Jekyll, Persian Jewels, Dwarf Moody Blues. The last two pictures are their fruit, a large inflated capsule that contains the seeds. Actually, I think everything about this flower is just a little bit creepy!


“For God is sheer beauty, all-generous in love, loyal always and ever.”
Psalm 100

I have never seen these flowers before but they are beautiful. Those are great names for these blooms but they make me think of Tim Burton movies. These flowers would have made a great bouquet for The Corpse Bride. LOL!

I can't say I like the seed pods,but the flower nestled in that delicate foliage is quite attractive,I think.

Not creepy Ginny, creative!!! Only God could come up with something as unique as this! Thanks for sharing your unique and beautiful gift! I love seeing the world through your eyes!

Karin said...

How do people come up with names - I've often wondered! They are a delicate bloom, very casual, unpretentious, and your photo is beautiful!

Hi Ginny, Looking just at the leaves and stems, they look a little like Cosmos. Now I know the identification of the flower. Weird-looking but pretty in the right spot in a garden. Glad you showed this. Have a super day!
