August CMMC pick a topic and FOTD

When I was looking through my photos to find a suitable one for this CMMC challenge, my first thought was to post a photo of the passionflower in our garden. The photos I had were interesting, but not up to the standard of this challenge. Instead I posted a fungus.

The very next day there was a new flower, so I am posting a photo of it here and linking with two of Cee’s challenges – CMMC (Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge) and FOTD (Flower of the Day). There are raindrops on the flower.

August CMMC – Red

The challenge Cee Neuner has set this week for the CMMC (Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge) is for the colour red. With advance warning of this topic I took a photo of some roses in our garden, when they were more or less at their best.

I am unable to tell you the name of these roses as they were in a batch of ‘lost label’ plants we bought.
