We came back from a bus trip with photos of twenty flowers for my collection.
Most I have been able to name but am stumped with these two.
The first was in a large pot near the Meteora.
The second looked like an escapee growing in some waste land in Kastoria.
It was a windy day hence the fuzziness.
I am sure you all know their names, they just don't seem to be in my book

No garden but two balconies, one facing south and the other north.
Most of my plants are succulents which need little care

A chance for me before Oron comes in!
The first is Gaura lindheimeri and the second is Oenothera speciosa - I hope.

Oron then confirmed the ID.
As several people then chimed in with comments about Gaura, I have split the topic and moved the Gaura topic to the Perennials board. And Fleur has contributed thoughts on Oenothera speciosa to the Oenothera topic on the Perennials board.
