  1. This flower is new to me. I love the vibrant colour.

      Very popular here for the late summer garden. I have a dark red one too which is also lovely. They do get nibbled by S&S though so I wasn’t sure they’d survive.

    That’s a pretty one! Hope Friday turns out well, Jude πŸ˜πŸ’•

      Friday was good, a tad wet and windy, and the coffee shop in the hospital wasn’t serving coffee *?***??? Not going anywhere today!

        Right damp in Otley but it’s dry in the pub πŸ˜†πŸ·πŸ’•

          Hilarious! Crowd in from Barnsley who’ve been to the fancy dress shop sale. Elvis has just left the building πŸ˜†πŸ’•

        2. Heyjude says:

          Nowt so queer as ‘Yorkshire’ folk!!

          Apparently the cricket at Headingly was rained off. Loads of folks seeking shelter. Mostly in costume. I felt quite left out. Till I got soaked πŸ˜•β˜”πŸ’•

    Aah, nothing like a helenium on its way out….

    1. Heyjude says:

      Except this one is on its way in!! Not sure there will be many petals left after today though.

    What a lovely photo

      Thank you πŸ™‚

    Member of the daisy family, I suppose? Certainly would be just right for a late summer/early fall garden.

    1. Heyjude says:

      “Helenium is a genus of annuals and herbaceous perennials in the sunflower family native to the Americas. ” So yes, a member of the extensive daisy family, I do love daisy-like flowers!!

  6. How lovely – you can just imagine it twirling and dancing. πŸ™‚

    1. Heyjude says:

      I always think of these pretty flowers with their drooping petals as dancers, skirts twirling around them πŸ™‚

    2. Ann Mackay says:

      Hehe! I love that image – and I think it may stay with me! And probably be appropriate in all this windy weather!

  7. BeckyB says:

    Gorgeous . . .hope all is well with you and that you are surviving the winds

    1. Heyjude says:

      Bit gusty today! But all’s well so far…
