Square in September

Becky from “A life of a 40 something” is posting a flower a day throughout September, in the square format. She’d love you to join her.

The centres of these delightful, long-lasting African daisies are often a delight with their unusual colours. Next time you pass some, stop and have a closer look.




Camellias are one of the most popular winter- and spring-flowering shrubs, providing a vivid splash of colour when little else is in bloom. Although they need acid soil, they are easy to grow in containers of ericaceous (acidic) potting compost. This is my first bloom of 2015.

H. niger is a semi-evergreen perennial to 30cm, with pedately lobed, leathery, dark green leaves and 1-3 pure white or pink-flushed white, bowl-shaped flowers up to 8cm in width. This is my first flower for 2015 and now has eleven beautiful flowers (3 x 3 and 2 x 1). A little late this year though as I usually see a flower open in February.

P. denticulata has distinctive large, spherical heads, composed of many neat, bell-shaped, tightly packed, golden-eyed florets, on top of 25cm-30cm (10in-12in) stems. Also known as the drumstick primula and available in a variety of particularly good colours: this is the lovely pure white variety.
