Welcome to this week’s {floral friday}!

Things are still a bit crazy around here and I just haven’t had time to do anything really. So once again, I am SO grateful for my mom to let me use some of her beautiful photography and share it with you on my {floral friday}!

I know I already posted about the “sister” of this beauty, but I still wanted to share this fun-looking plant with you. ;)

A few facts about the campanula:

  • Common names are Bluebell, Bellflower, Chimney Bells, Canterbury Bells, Stars-of-Bethlehem and Falling Stars.
  • The flowers are bell-, star– or funnel-shaped, are 1 inch to 2 inches wide and come in loose clusters at the ends of long stems.

  • The genus name “Campanula” comes from the Latin word “campana” for “bell,” referring to the bell– shaped flowers. {source}
  • The Brothers Grimm’s tale Rapunzel took its name from this plant. {source}

I’m partying here! ❤

  6. Hello Vanessa,
    Your mother’s pictures are beautiful again, the third one is stunning! Can’t wait till it is spring and the campanula’s are going to bloom in my garden.

  7. I want to complement you on your choice of mothers! LOL! How blessed you are to have a mom who is so talented. She really creates beautiful pictures of God’s handiwork. I am curious if she is a professional photographer. And YES! — they look like paintings! I’m glad I stumbles across your blog referred to in “The Cosy Little Kitchen”.
    Keep a’goin’!
