Finally a plant I can actually name, this is a phlomis. I can’t tell you which one exactly but I am still feeling very proud that thanks to my attempts as a amateur botanist in Portugal I am actually remembering names back here in England!

It's a bee on a Phlomis

As we are halfway through ‘Square in September’ perhaps I should remind everyone of how this came about. In August I was looking at the diary and realised that September was going to be impossibly busy what with MrB’s 70th, Heritage Open Days, Dad’s memorial, a Christening where I am one of the godmothers, arrival of family from USA, a gallery opening and possibly a trip to Scotland! I was worried that I wouldn’t have time for this blog, and so decided I would follow in the footsteps of the wonderful Cee by posting a flower every day. There is though a slight twist in that every picture has been edited into a square, hence my title Square in September!

  1. I’ve been very busy and just noticed Jude’s “Square September” post which led me to your lovely blog. I love the idea of a flower a day in a square – like Instagram. Maybe I will try to post during the weekend. 🙂

  2. I love these flowers when they are finished as they produce the most dramatic sculptural forms for the winter. For some reason I rarely see them in actual flower! I’m heading for the tropics now (flowerwise that is, sadly not so tropical here at the moment).

  3. Ah yes, I recognise this one. 🙂 🙂 It was a brainwave of yours… I think… reluctantly 😦 Meg says she’s going to use square format for a shells post.
    Did you see Andrew’s comment today? A walking tour and history lesson about Portuguese tiles! I should be there!
