I actually think she is a real attractive one.

I agree - and wearing all that pink, she must be a "she"  ! Never seen such a pink fly!

The only one I cannot like is the vasp. If they just could stick to the flowers.... :P

 ;D I think many people feel the same as you do Elly. Usually the species responsible for this bad feeling is 'The Common Wasp' Vespa vulgaris, or 'The German Wasp' Vespa germanica. Most other species are much much less aggresive ( even the Vespa sp. have much more to do than attack, but unfortunately they do respond to sudden movement or perceived threat,  :( ), and many have much in common with artists like yourself.  ;D ;D

Certainly 'The Potter Wasps', the Eumenidae sp., and others ( a couple of examples here... many more elsewhere) -

and 'The Paper Wasp', Polistinae sp. and others -

...........these and many other wasps produce the most incredible 'artistic' structures,  ;D ;D, as well as helping to control some of the other insect species that many gardeners consider pests. 8) 8)

Pulsatilla
« Reply #17 on: March 06, 2013, 01:13:48 PM »
A highlight in my garden is the Pulsatilla.  During Christmas I could not resist a little gardening, just clearing up withered leafs etc. I should have waited of course, for suddenly I stood there with parts of my Pulsatilla in my hand. Luckily I saw traces of roots on it, and took it to my heated greenhouse, and potted it up in several pots. See the portrait in my blog: http://ellypropelly.wordpress.com/2013/03/06/kubjelle-pulsatilla/

Seeds - irresistable
« Reply #18 on: March 12, 2013, 11:31:45 AM »
I cannot resist putting seeds in the soil. At a certain point my system will collapse, but I will worry about that - later.

Corthusa matthiolii! The name is like the plant a piece of poetry. See how it performs in my garden, Bergen, Norway.

Sweet William and the Meconopsis sisters.
« Reply #22 on: March 19, 2013, 12:53:21 PM »
So how did the Meconopsis react on this strange broom like newcomer? Did he deserve his place on the front row? Well, Sweet William was very much aware of his own value.  Follow the link to my blog and see by yourself: http://ellypropelly.wordpress.com/2013/03/19/dianthus-barbatus-nigrescens-sooty/

Delphinium - blue like the sky on a sunny day
« Reply #23 on: May 06, 2013, 10:59:19 AM »
A grey, rainy day, but my mood is blue like the sky on a clear day. I am inspired by my Delphiniums. Allready with buds, they are standing in the green house, eager to get out and show off.

See the portrait in my blog:
