  1. Your title kind of sounds like the title to a kids’ story or book. πŸ™‚ I find the white center of the pretty amazing as it’s almost as if it is radiating light.

    1. These flowers have always come back every year since I moved here over 25 years ago. They flower through June then they finish. The bees love them, and so does the odd moth. They do kind of glow in the centre. Thank you, David πŸ™‚

  2. I wonder if it is the same moth species as was on my geranium (similar colour) – I’ll be posting it this week so look out for it. Unfortunately my photo is a lot more blurred than yours!
