I love colour. I don't know what this is but someone in Europe, or more specifically Sweden, might like to tell me, for I'd like to know. It is probably as commonplace as any hedgerow weed, but for me, a visitor to Europe, it was like a greeting of great joy!
Ian, I think it's Ribes sanguineum Red-flowering Currant, which was introduced to Europe from the west coast of North America.
I wasn't expecting you to identify one I encountered in Sweden, but I am grateful. Thanks.
It's probably because I saw it in flower in a friend's garden in Poulsbo, Washington, in 1999. Many plants have particular characters that can be seen in photos, and that makes it easy. The giveaway with this one is the leaf (quite distinctive) and the ring formed by the stamens in the middle of the flower.
Excelente y a la vez ENVIDIABLE. Saludos desde Argentina...Defensores
I am very pleased that you have enjoyed some of the flowers in my gallery, Defensores. Warm greetings to you and yours in Argentina,
Ian (currently in Tonga)
