Sea Holly Flower

This picture is of a Sea Holly flower I bought to give to a friend and I could not resist getting a few photos before I handed over the flower to my friend.

Whilst the common name of this plant is the Sea Holly its proper name is Eryngium and that is what the florist called it when I bought it. This Sea Holly plant is a cultivated variety of the native plant found around coastlines in Europe.

My nearby florist keeps some really nice and unusual flowers and the building has a movie connection too, perhaps I will do a post about that sometime.

Not a very common flower in Sweden. It grows on the islands of Gotland and Öland.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
