Astrantia in two seasons

At Wisley the other day, in the rain, I grabbed a shot of some Astrantia…not a great image, but OK. I didn’t have the right lens to get in close and catch the raindrops properly, but hey, they were quite colourful:

and here’s an image I took of decaying ones…well, I’m sure that’s what they were. No colour here… …


  1. Nice contrast with the decay, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. They are beautiful even in decay.

  3. Hi Sue! I hope this finds you doing well. Such pretty pink blooms and quite the contrast to the decay photo below. The cycle of life captured.

  4. Beauty in two different ways. And showing the cycle of life. It’s quite a story you have captured between the two photos. Simply beautiful.

  5. I have no idea whether they’re the same or not, but the contrast between the two shots is very good.

    Gorgeous pink color flowers, Sue. the decaying ones are beautifully captured.

  7. I like both versions, but if they are the same where did the prickles come from?
