September: Flower Portrait

Jude asks for a single picture of either a favourite flower or an unusual one for September’s challenge. As I failed miserably to find an entry last month, I was determined to make it this time. So yesterday, I had a flying visit to Killerton to see what was on offer in their late summer border.
I’ve never been a particular fan of Canna Lily’s, but at this time of year they make a bright, bold statement in the border. The delicate petals of this one, Canna Indica I believe, attracted my attention.

You can join Jude’s challengeΒ here, and you have until the end of September to showcase a single flower.

  1. That’s pretty, Gilly! Safe travels, sweetheart! Excited for you. I’ve decided not to bother with Jude’s challenge this month because she’s not here. (tee hee!). Unless, of course, we find something in the Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    1. I’m on the coach to Heathrow, few hours sleep at the premier inn, or not as I’m too excited! Did you make some nice plans? Is it Edinburgh for a day or abut longer? She told me she’s away for ages and slightly nervous about meeting you, bless πŸ™‚ is it next week? Anyway have a great week, lots of love xx

      1. I’m up there next Thursday/Friday and Jude arrives Thursday evening. Plans depend on the weather a bit. Hugs, sweetheart! Have a fab time πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  2. I’m not a huge canna fan myself, they get very tatty, but I have seen some lovely ones recently. And they do look exotic! I’ll post some when I am back home. Enjoy Barca! Genna is going to book the same hotel as you so I hope it is a nice one! Let me know πŸ™‚

I would love to hear from you . . .
