Saturday Photo Hunt ---- Bright




BRIGHT


At first all I could think of for this was bright meaning shiny. I needed something shiny. But then I saw this quote:

The crocus, the snowdrop, and the effulgent daffodil are considered bright harbingers of spring (John Gould)

So bright also means vivid in colour, full of colour. What could be more colourful than this flower which I photographed recently on a tour of a friend's garden? One of the brilliant blue Campanula glomerata hydrids which are blooming their little hearts out at this time of year. She did tell me which one it was but I do not remember. Isn't it stunning?





Each head of the flower is made up of myriads of tiny little bell-shaped
flowers which is how it gets the name of clustered Bell flower
or Campanula

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE

Beautiful shots JMB!
I have a clump of these in my yard - actually I have three different kinds - 2 blue and 1 white one. I love these plants. If you keep dead-heading they will bloom forever :)

They're lovely! And "vivid" was one the the definitions I found for bright. (I had to go to the dictionary for inspiration!)
