This month ‘Hey Jude‘ is asking us to showcase a ‘flower that you are particularly fond of or one that is unusual’. Crikey I thought . . . . . where do I start! As you may have already gathered from my other blog I am turning into a flora fiend! After much flower pondering I realised I was never going to be able to showcase just one, but I am going to try and restrict myself to four. I thought one favourite or unusual for every Sunday.
So the first of the four is a favourite. Like Restless Jo I can never resist them when walking past. I love this photograph, not just because of the colours and composition but because it always brings back happy memories of a glorious Autumn visit to Pittsburgh. A great city these days, and one I have been fortunate enough to visit lots. Apart from my family who live there, one of the highlights is Phipps Conservatory. It is a real must see if you visit Pittsburgh. And talking of visits I do hope you will visit again next Sunday, or maybe before as I have never been one to follow even my own rules so there could be more flower portraits mid week!
