Temporary (this week’s photo challenge from the Daily Post) describes something, which does not last long. After Christmas 2015 I bought a Christmas cactus, which was still flowering. Last year it produced buds, but they withered. This year it has more buds and the first flower came out during the week. Guessing that it would not last long I took a photo.
My interpretation of the Peek Photo challenge from the Daily Post is slightly different from the example. Instead of giving you a peek at something half hidden my photo shows a plant, which found its way through a fence in September to give passers-by a peek at its flowers. They were passion flowers.
A late friend of my mother used to cultivate one of these and could explain how it came to have its name.
Lines from a very popular hymn are,
He made their glowing colours,
He made their tiny wings.
The preceding lines are about flowers and birds. The lines came into my head as I was looking for a photo to use for the Glow photo challenge from the Daily Post. I noticed that red admiral butterflies are colourful and have tiny wings! They were enjoying the Michaelmas daisies.
The hymn is All things bright and beautiful. (Words by Cecil Frances Alexander)
