Harebells/ Today's Flowers

Harebells (Campanula rotundifolia) in Ontario's "cottage country"

The bluebells of Scotland are called harebells here. They were bobbing in the wind when I first spotted them by the side of the road, but they stopped momentarily for my lens to capture them.

I love how you did this photo...saw it earlier when I was showing Roger the yard art...didn't have time to comment then.

Those are so lovely. I think I've always heard them called bluebells so interesting to know they are also called harebells.

Dimple said...

Such a lovely image! I planted some white harebells in my flowerbed, they lived a couple of years, but I think they died out. These blue ones are really pretty.
Thanks for coming by!

It is new for me, I've never seen it before. The color is simply elegant EG. Have a nice Sunday!

I think the Bluebell is the state flower of Texas and they grow wild everywhere.

As re your question on Stone Creek - no, those aren't roses, but I don't their name...

That almost transparent blue colour is amazing.
This flower was one of my moter's favourites. Thanks for posting it

I love that lavender color. I have something similar that will bloom in a while. Your frame for the picture is unique, too. Thanks for stopping by for a visit. ♥♫

We call them bluebells (blåklokker) here in Norway

I love the shape of these lovely flowers. In Sweden they are called "blåklocka" and that means bluebell if you do a direct translation. :)

Those flowers are gorgeous and your montage too.
Thanks for visiting my blog, you´re always welcome.

Lovely image of the Harebells and beautiful overall impression!

We have smaller bell shaped ones we call bluebells - I am not sure what we call these but they are lovely!

Ebie said...

I still would stick with the bluebells. They are so beautiful and delicate. I think ours have long been gone, unless in the higher elevation.

Manang Kim said...

Just wishing in our field we have bluebells and all those wild flowers. These is gorgeous. Happy Sunday!

Love your framing on this one!
The frame shows them off quite well.

Jama said...

Love that color!

Ann said...

Why is it that blue flowers appeal to me. is it because there are less of them?

Small City Scenes said...

Very clever treatment.
I like Bluebells or Harebells or even Canterbury Bells. Nice shots. MB

Luckaa said...

Carolyn Ford said...
