Cleome hassleriana (Family: Capparidaceae)
(Markus, thanks for the ID!)

I found this beautiful flower in a garden of a wooden orthodox church in Maramures region in Romania. I have no idea what kid of plant it is. It was some 50cm high and the leaves were similar to those of Impatiens.

Very nice composition, beautiful colour.

Cześć, Misiu,

Doskonała kompozycja i światło.
Co do rośliny - to jest Cleome hassleriana = c. spinosa, z rodziny Capparidaceae. Nie wiem, skąd to pochodzi, ale jest uprawiane na całym świecie, w tym i u nas dość często. Niezwykle oryginalna roślina.

For a good reason you seem to have fallen inlove with my country, Michal... Splendid colors and that dew glued on the flowers it just makes your heart melt lookin' at it...

Hi Michal,
this is so beautiful. I like the colour, the blossom is so delicate. The drops make the shot so special, it's realy wonderful and I like it very much, thanks for sharing

Hi Michal, what a wonderful show of flowers. Just BEAUTIFUL. And very artistic too. The water drops look so good, and the colours and details are so sharp. I love it. Well done, thank you.

Hi Michal,
Very very nice portrait, well composed i like the vivid colours & blurred background, pov & dof are great,light is beautifull, well done!


I concure with the others regarding the quality of this photo. Great sharpness, colors, POV,... like you allways do!
My only comment would be that the place where you took the shot is not in Satu Mare region, but in Maramures Region as you stated in your note, yet not placed it there at the top of the page. (well, I guess is my local proudness that's wrighting right now ...)
