Some interesting looking flowers I found in the Public Gardens over the last couple of days. Not sure what all of them are called so I'm not even going to try :shrug:

The ones in the second photo are pansies. My grandmother used to grow them. I love the colors in all of them.

Very good shots. I can tell, that the first one is a big poppy.
They are starting like this http://gallery.digicamclub.de/4images/data/media/14/mohniemissmut4.jpg and then like this http://gallery.digicamclub.de/4images/data/media/207/hutmohn.jpg.

And QuietOne is right about the pansies.
I know the third one too - but not the english name (I am searching ;-)).
The last one could be a Calendula... maybe.

the first is a poppy- beautiful sharpness and detail here Iggy!

love the colour and water on the pansy

the third is Allium (I think) and I love the background and the colour you caught

final one I know I know it but the name is escaping me. However, I like the dark background as a contrast and the shadows on the petals. I even like the small one beside it.

good work.

Thank you, MoinMoin and Bambi. I like to photograph them but my brain refuses to remember their names :headslap:

Hey, Iguanasan - never mind. Therefor I can remember the names, but about photographing my brain... - hell, no - I won't say it loud! :goodvibes
