One of my very favourite flowers (and that was even true before I read Sheila's comment)!
Love the effect on this one Bev!

I didn't realise you were so refined, Bev :-)
I had to look this flower up and it said,
"According to Smith’s Exotic Botany of 1805, “The more refined admirers of Nature” rate Astrantia among their favorite blossoms. The flowers bloom like tiny enchanting fireworks: a star burst of bracts surround the spray of small flowers and splashy groups of buds shoot out from branched stems like the finale on the Fourth of July."
