Flowers - Sunday Stamps

Here are some that I  received recently. I hope you can recognise the flowers - I'm still trying to confirm what they are.

Germany
And one from the Channel Islands.

Jersey - Ragged Robin
I'm pleased that they called this flower by its common name; it would have taken me a while to sort it out from the Latin.

For more flower arrangements visit Viridian at Sunday-stamps-157.

very pretty stamps, I like the bleeding heart, though the German translates to 'crying heart' which is perhaps nicer.

I recognise the centre of the German set - Bleeding Heart. The one on the right could be a Californian Poppy, perhaps. I like the set.

Nice choice.Sorry I don't know the names in Latin nor in English.

I'm always pleased when I get one of those German flower definitives, such pretty stamps.

the on on the far left looks almost like one I posted called a pasque flower (among other names). I like the ragged robin (the name and the flower!)

I've gotten the middle one and the right one before on postcrossing postcards, but the one on the left is new to me.
Thank you for participating!

Bob, I think with the German stamps the one on the left is a Pasque Flower and the one on the right a California Poppy. They are beautiful stamps but my favourite is the Ragged Robin, a flower I recall seeing a lot in my childhood but not of late. Habitat loss no doubt.

Pretty stamps. I thought the one in the middle was Ladies Slipper.

In Germany they seem to have many stamps with flowers! I liked the goldmohn!

Lovely, yes I used to grow the Bleeding Heart or Dicentra Spectabilis, also known as ‘Lady in the Bath’ or ‘Dutchman’s Breeches’ (and I wrote all that without googling anything!)
