Iberis pectinata

Spanish name: carraspique blanco, zarzara

Iberis is a genus of flowering plant in the family Brassicaceae. It comprises herbs and subshrubs of the Old World. These species are commonly known as candytufts. Used in Homeopathy for nervousness and muscle soreness. According to the US Dispensatory (1918) the leaves, stem, and root are said to possess medicinal properties, but the seeds are most efficacious.
The genus Iberis consists of about 50 species of annuals, perennials and evergreen subshrubs. They are excellent for rock gardens, bedding and borders

Hola amigo mio José,

Saludos sinceros

Hola Jose, que poco tiempo tengo, el trabajo me va a sacar de quicio. Con este calor y tu subiendo fotos primaverales, con flores y todo verdecito. Eso no se hace. :-). Muy bueno el trabajo con la cámara y la presentación. Un abrazote.

Excellent composition! I like the combination of PoV for this posting. It allows us to see clearly the details of the two points of view.
Delightful colours and details

Hello Jose,
Beautiful flowers. Like seeing in natural environment. POV and composition are great. Great color clarity. TFS,

Hola José Miguel,
Que buen trabajo realizas, siento que cuando vaya a España y camine por el campo reconoceré una gran cantidad de plantas y flores.
Muy bello el carraspique blanco, formado por esas capas crecientes de pétalos blancos. Y muy ilustrativo el inserto ampliado.
Buen trabajo y gracias por mostrarnoslo.
Un gran saludo,

Hola José,
Very fine presentation of this Iberis species with a clever inset of the actual floration.
I like the composition of the plant itself in its natural habitat, the flowers contrasting well against the surrounding greenery.
Gracias por esto.
Un gran saludo,

Hello Jose,
Delicate white flower in the middle of a green field, very summery motif!
The subject is well exposed keeping texture in the white, composiution is simple but telling the story!

Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Hi Jose,

What an outstanding post. You managed the DOF in such a way to give us a great idea of the habit of this plant. The exposure was also skillfully handled to give us perfect exposure of the white flower. Brilliant idea to do the insert to show more detail of the flower. I enjoyed!

Hi Jose,
Beautiful flowers and fabulous formation. The exposure is superb with fine focus. The natural habitat is wonderfully illustrated and the close-up shot as inset gives us a good view of the flower. Excellent POV to portray them and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hello Jose,
Très bonne idée de montrer une image d'un ensemble de ces belles fleurs et d'ajouter en médaillon le détail. Elles ont une très jolie forme et me rappelle un peu certaines scabieuses.
Bon dimanche te souhaite

Hi Jose,
I like the prentation with closeup inset left top..Nice detail, colors, and well exposed. Great note on the Candytuft with links also.
Well done!

Hi Jose

I love this presentation with the two POVs. Lovely to see the environment and also a close up top view. Lovely looking plant



Hola Jose !
Estas floras son muy ellas, no la conocia antes de ver tu foto. Me gusta su forma. Estaba una buena idea de incluir una otra foto, con un POV diferente - asi podemos ver toda la belleza de la flor. Composicion, colores, detalles, todo es excelento.
Agradecidos y saludos,

José, this is simple and beautiful.

I like composition and colors a lot.

Hello José,
most pleasant, very well describing presentation of this cute flower of spring. Presenting that single congregation of blossoms in the upper left corner is a lovely idea. I think that this strictly vertical close-up would also look very appealing when presented isolated, in large format.
Thank you! My best regards,

Hola Jose,
Lovely capture.Nicely exposed and composed.I liked visual impact and presentation a lot.

I missed this lovely flower picture of yours earlier, so going back to it is a real pleasure, Jose.
A fantastic composition with lovely colours.
The inset close-up is very artfully placed; it looks like the part of the full image.
TFS and regards.

Hermosas flores y muy buena la ampliación para observar en detalle estas minúsculas bellezas.
Buena nota José.
Saludos, JL.

Sometimes I get the feeling that you are a "walking" encyclopaedia re: herbs, my very dear friend, Jose.

A BEAUTIFULLY detailed composition.
