What is the name of this flower?

Unknown flower. Photo: Ulla Hennig

There are people who see a flower and say “Ah, that’s a ….!” And then they take a photo of it. For me, it is the other way round – I see  flowers, think they are worth taking a photo of and take the picture.

No problem with that if I use the photo only to show it to friends (or on my blog) – I call it “unknown flower”. But, as some of you may know, I am into Zazzle for quite some time now, and “postcard with unknown flower” would sound as if I just discovered an up to now unknown flower species.

Not that I did not look it up on some websites. It can be that I know the German name of it, but there was no way to have the English translation.

And now you, my dear reader, are wanted: Do you know the flower above, and how do you call it?

And by the way, that’s my 251st blog post! Isn’t that a reason to do a very moderate Happy dance?!

About Ulla Hennig

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.

    Well, I must admit to doing much the same thing, Ulla. To me, these are a beautiful example of “purple flowers”. Sorry! 😦
