September: flower portrait


This month Jude is inviting us to share flowers that we like.  I saw this one for the first time quite recently, growing against a wall of the house at Charlecote Park, Warwickshire.  It’s a clianthus puniceus (also known as Parrot Beak, Glory Pea or Lobster Claw), a scrambling shrub which is native to New Zealand’s North Island.

  1. A very striking flower.

  2. Yes, I can see why it’s called a Parrot Beak, Elaine… very striking.

  3. Oh cool Elaine! I love finding unusual ones – is this growing outdoors? In the UK? Your close-up is magnifique!

  4. This flower has such a vibrant colour. Great choice for a portrait, Elaine.

  5. Wow! That’s magnificent. You’re getting really good with your camera, Elaine. 🙂

  6. Ooh, that’s a dramatic one! 🙂 Funny, I keep coming across Charlecote in posts. Shame it’s a bit far from me.

Now it's your turn
