i am wild about pretty much anything pam zsori arranges and shows us on her housemartin blog, but i love it especially when she uses nigella, or love-in-a-mist. this is a gorgeous annual summer flower, with delicate fernlike foliage. it starts out as a stripey balloon shaped pod that gives way to a lovely round ruffled flower, and ultimately becomes a very unusual horned seed pod, self-sowing its own seeds.

this leads me to present to you these botanical works from uk fine art photographer mike finley. mike is inspired by plants and chooses to shoot them in monochrome to emphasize their unique forms.

mike is also the resident photographer at the lower moss wood wildlife hospital and nature reserve in cheshire, and has crafted a special collection from his work there.
