The pyracantha in a tub in our garden had flowers and berries at the same time on 20th September. I have noticed other plants with similar behaviour – honeysuckle, bramble, roses, apple trees and perennial cornflowers all seem to be having late flowers.
For this week’s Midweek Madness Challenge from Cee Neuner (CMMC) I have chosen a photo I took in June. It is a close-up of hogweed flowers with insects. A similar image may have appeared on Twitter with the hashtag #WildWebsWednesday – people tweet their photos of wildlife dependent on plants. Here I noticed mutual dependence; the insects pollinate the flowers.
Don’t forget to visitCee’s blog to see her photos and links to other entries.
Cee Neuner’s picture today is of women painting pictures in a garden. One of the suggestions for a topic is woman. It just happens I have a post coming out next week on Sue’s Trifles with a picture of a woman. Now should I preview it here or find a picture of a garden? I know: I’ll post a (phone) picture of the Jubilee flower bed in the small park where the woman was.
