Amethyst Sea Holly for Macro Friday

Eryngium-photomerge-LR
Laura at Blogging from Bolivia hosts Macro Friday.   This week I am showing a photomerged photo of three similar macro photos of the Eryngium ‘amethystinum’ that I have growing in the Sandbox gardens.    I have three varieties of Eryngium, the planum with a small blue steel-blue flowers, the amethystinum and a giganteum that will have  very large silvery-grey flower bracts.   The photo makes my eyes cross.  Does it do it to you too?
This weekend we will have the family over to celebrate my Dad’s 91st birthday.   Hopefully the day is sunny but not too hot.    What are you doing this weekend?It is a long one for those of us in Canada.    Have a great one.   Valerie

Hi Val
Great shot, as usual. Hope the BD party is a fun day.
Glenn's taking his sister to the Jays game on Sunday since her son gave him the tickets - what a nice guy.
I'll catch up on blog visits and gardening.
