Greater Masterwort/ Today's Flowers

All summer long, Greater Masterwort (Astrantia major) blooms on the east side of my house where it gets sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon. I love their neat silvery flowers with their flush of soft pink. Plus their fragrance is lovely and if I cut the flowers for a kitchen bouquet, they last a long time.

An fantastic photo of an enchanting flower!
Every Euro country may design the backside of the Euro coins individually. Austria has chosen the yellow primrose, "Alpenschl├╝sselblume", a flower in the Austrian Alps.
