Thanks Akira, Tom. I learn a lot about flowers and plan here :)

Another one from today.
Nice on, Zang.  Lovely 'white on white' graphic look.

We call it teasel. Here it is dried out in the summer.
Have seen it used in floral arrangements.
I think of it more as a weed though.

Aquilegia -

It's called Thalictrum aquilegifolium. The second part of the name means that the leaves look like those of Aquilegia.
John Maud - aka Coreopsis in another place.

Wow, they look exactly the same despite a vast geological distance. I found some of the flowers have purple rings around them.

I saw some Monarda flowerheads on the page!

Ammophila arenaria, wild helm, marram or E. beachgrass
