Spiky Squares has come to an end, but here is my round-up of all my spiky, jagged, barbed, serrated and bristly photos from this month. There is an extra one. I wonder if anyone who has been following these posts carefully can spot which that is.
I have had fun looking through my archives to find suitable flora (and one bird) for this intriguing challenge and I thank Becky for hosting the challenge so well (as always). All we need to do now is wait and see what the Queen of Squares is going to challenge us with in June.
And if you have a favourite, then please let me know in the comments.

Tough choice! My favourite is the crinum flower, I think, or the oak leaves. It was a good idea to create this review post. Who would have thought we’d have been thinking about spiky all month?
Have you seen today’s Google Tulip film?
sorry not paid enough attention to spot the odd one so am going to guess monochrome ferns 😉 favourite is Agave flexispina with those ash black tips
That Agave is quite striking.
They’re all beautiful but my favourite would be that unidentified Australian looking bloom. Did anyone ever tell you what it might be?
Nope, still a mystery plant.
ooh am sure Brian suggested something . . . must have been on my message to him. Will try and find it 🙂
Found it . . . . . was it not a Lilli Pill?!
That was the bristly brush pink flower. I think we are talking about the bottom row, second along in the second collage.
So many Australian plants I am getting confused!!
Don’t worry, just like them 🙂
They’re all gorgeous of course but my favourite is the silver one, it looks metallic and I was wowed when I first saw it.
Thank you Gilly, yes the black and white ones worked well.
I’ve looked twice and I still can’t decide. They showcase your photography beautifully, Jude. 🙂 🙂
Thank you Jo. Back to a quieter regime now…
They look wonderful displayed together like this!
Thanks Ann 🙂
oh this is gorgeous, thank you so so much for spotting I had not seen this wonderful collage. I think I love your ferns (bottom right) in the first one, and then in the second as much as I like the B&W ferns I think it has to be the Xanthorrhoea.
All thanks to your challenge for enabling me to post these lovely blooms!
