7+14=21. Another week of B&W photo challenge! Day 21..

Atgofion has nominated me to do this again so I am adding another 7 to the original 14!

Some of my pics are new, some are old, some have appeared on Instagram already (in colour). Some of the subjects have special significance for me, some have special significance for friends, some are just pretty pictures.


With regards choosing nominees. I really don’t enjoy doing that. So I am going to use this opportunity to nominate new bloggers and new followers to help them enter the fold of this lovely community. There is no obligation, and anyone else who wants to take part is very welcome to do so!

The rules are: Seven days. Seven black and white photos of your life. No people. No explanation. Challenge someone new each day.

Today’s nominee is:

YOU – I’m about done with the nominating for now! Feel free to join in.

Here are colour pics of the subject, Eryngium bourgatii, which show Linda’s comment to be spot on!


      1. I was right? It was one of those “it looks like it, but it can’t possibly be it.” yay me! haha! I have plenty of thistle in my back yard that will be bulldozed under when we build the garage. You can have all you want. I walk barefoot outside and I curse everytime I step on one that Bill’s mowed so it appears harmless until the last minute. Ouchie!

          1. Haha!!! Those non-plant people have no idea! But then again I like the looks of dandelions on the lawn and Indian Paintbrush springing up here and there. One year, Bill left the mowing so long that tiny Queen Anne’s Lace started to grow. He mowed around that patch all summer and they made a beautiful island of white lacy flowers in the green lawn. He said that was HIS garden. I simply loved it, but I’m sure the passing motorists must have thought we were mad.

            1. Many people here deliberately try to grow Indian Paintbrush with little success. I think it is semi-parasitic and needs the right host or something. Queen Anne’s Lace is a lovely thing so I do not blame Bill at all! We grow two similar plants – Selinum wallichianum and the black leaved form (Ravenswing) of our native cow parsley.

  1. Wow! I really like the lighting effect in the B&W pic. The last one is my fave though. What an interesting photo. Love this funny shape flower, the bee and the lavender shade. Just perfect.
