Absolutely gorgeous! I'd add that drool emoticon, except it bugs me. I tip my hat to you.

Thank you. I only keep a few of these Gooseneck loosestrife plants in my garden because the flower heads take nice photographs with their different shapes.

I've always liked their look, but read somewhere that they were invasive, so haven't ever gotten any for the garden. Have you got them planted with others that keep them in check? Stellar photography, BTW, as I said before. What kind of camera do you use, if I may ask? I've got a Nikon D3300, but I'm still learning how to use it.

They are very invasive. I planted it in a very large pot with bottom cut away sunk in the ground. I have a canon t6s.
