Or do you have a different favourite in September?

Nalinki at Angles and Views has started #flowersoverflowers where we can share our favourite blossoms of the week. It seems like a good idea to spread some blooms across the Internet. I am more than happy to join in.

    Jude any flower that is managing to still bloom here in Canada is a favourite. These are gorgeous and I am having late summer envy of your environment. 🙂

    Great Physallis shot, and the Gaura, I didn’t know the name had been changed!

    1. Heyjude says:

      I find that the names are always changing! Can’t keep up with it. I suppose as botanists learn more about the structure / characteristics of a plant they realise that some have been wrongly classified to a specific genus.

      1. Lucid Gypsy says:

        You’re right of course!

  4. What a spectacularly varied gallery: I’m for thistle and echinacea this morning, and I need your camera here. My selection of September flowers here is under construction, but I’m dealing with a lot of photographic disappointments. You and your new camera don’t live in a world of failures. The shots are all beautifully clear, and every one gives a special and distinctive pleasure.

      So many lovely flowers this month. I have chosen different ones to the single flowers I am featuring, September is probably the last month for lots of flower colour. Next month is the time for leaves and seeds.

      1. I love leaves and seeds – looking forward to October post.

  5. I do like the globe thistle. It’s a little unusual. Here in September all our spring annuals are coming into flower and Mr ET’s ranunculi are looking gorgeous. Also our streets are lined with flowering trees at the moment – the flowering peach trees are stunning.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Pictures please! Especially of the ranunculi and the flowering trees 🙂

      1. None of these photos are of our garden, which pales into insignificance compared with these, but this is what my city is like at this time of year. This year, the Carnival of Flowers begins on Saturday.

          Groan… oh I wish I was there.

    You know that blue line that slides across the top as the page loads? It does irritate me, but maybe it’s better than watching the twirling arrow and drumming my fingers. I’m an impatient soul this morning. 🙂 Too much to do!
    All irrelevant, of course, because your unfolding dahlia is my favourite shot, though I do admire the clarity of that thistle. Who can love thistles? See! Intolerant too 😦 Your bigoted friend is leaving the garden. Maybe t’ai chi will soothe this morning. And, heavens above, we have sunshine after yesterday’s drowning! I only came here to say I like physallis but I was going to call them by their common name, except my mind has gone blank and I can’t remember it. A pop of orange and I’m gone 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Gosh! Hope you are feeling more relaxed now Jo. You were quite the whirlwind this morning. Yes the blue line is annoying. I keep my file small too so they shouldn’t take long to load. A ‘feature’ of this theme perhaps? Common name of physalis is Chinese or paper lantern, I think. The word itself means bladder.

      1. restlessjo says:

        Saw some nice ones (lanterns) on my walk back from t’ai chi. Sorry, Jude! I almost sent you an email apologising afterwards. I should be packing but Mick doesn’t know which trousers for the wedding (i.e do they fit still?) or shirt. No wonder I’m stressed. 🙂 🙂 He’s gone to pick yet more apples from next door’s overburdened tree. If you were nearer I’d send him round with some.

        1. Heyjude says:

          I didn’t realise Mick went to Poland with you, for some reason I thought it was just you and your Dad. Men are pretty useless with clothes, I have to push the OH into a clothes shop or shoe shop. Apples would be nice, a lovely apple crumble with custard, yummy!! Good luck with the packing! And have a nice flight (is that even possible?) I am sure you will enjoy the wedding, cross fingers the weather plays ball.

        2. restlessjo says:

          He mostly doesn’t. Think he’s been 2/3 times? I hope to be strolling in Krakow on Friday, then Saturday we travel north a bit to the wedding and stay overnight. Warm showers forecast for Saturday, cool ones next week, but you never know. Thanks darlin’. I’d better go and start. 🙂
