Tomorrow I'll be sharing the last photos of the series, in the colors pink, purple & red.

It's a joy & a pleasure to share these humble captures of my native region, all year around. I love nature, I love photography, I love blogging, and I love blogging about my nature photographs, sounds pretty obvious, doesn't it ? I hope you like to see & know more about the species growing in southern France ! I sure learn new species each time. Because since I don't know it all (ugh !!!), I need to make researchs for identifying what I've photographed. This way, while sharing with you, I learn new things myself !

Someone I used to know once wrote on one of the social networks she was on, that writing the names in Latin was being snob or posh. Come on, it's the only way (when you don't know the English or French translations -or else-) to know you're talking about the right species. There is so much to learn from the names in Latin, and if you're interested, I recommend you to have a look at this page, it is very interesting !

Have a great start to the week, and see you tomorrow !
