The Dusty Miller of Battersea Park – A Look Back

Hello everyone!!! I wanted to do a little look back on one of the blog posts, so I decided to find out the name of the plant. The name of this plant is called a Dusty Miller, as I did a little bit of research to find out the name of this plant. I was eager to find out what it was called. By using this photo of the plant I took back in August, I used Google Images to find the name of this plant, and just by looking at the Dusty Miller, you can see a lot of detail, it has that kind of feel to it where it appears to be glowing around the edges.

When I looked at this plant, it had what appeared to be a wintry appearance, as you would normally associate snowflakes with that curved shape of the plant. The Dusty Miller has a beautiful texture, and because of how structured it looks, it stands out. Going to Battersea Park in August was special, as it was a place where I could expand my creative ideas further.

Despite the hot weather last summer, it was truly special because you could see the whole of London from a glimpse, and to top it all off, I could see the River Thames below, which gave me two ideas to create a few panoramic photos that would show the whole landscape around Battersea Park. I hope to go there again soon after I leave school as I’m now in my last couple of months of secondary education.

To conclude, I have provided 4 images of the same Dusty Miller plant photo for different sizes that are suitable for the iPad & iPad mini, iPhone & iPod touch, Laptop/PC and Apple’s iMac/Macbook. Feel free to download these wallpapers anytime:

Thank you for reading this blog post.
