A-Z Challenge - Flowers
 
Another simple one!

Can I please introduce one rule? If you post 'A' you have to let someone else have a shot at 'B' etc!

So, A is for Anemone

C is for Cyclamen - I realised we had some in the bathroom :) They so reliably bloom in profusion year after year. I think this plant is the best part of 20 years old and it has taken plenty of abuse (mainly not being watered and fed regularly!).

Forgive the slightly dreamy (reduced clarity adjustment) and turned-up contrast and saturation, but the bathroom light was very grey and flat through the window just now :(

D is for discarded Dahlia: I found it near the compost heap at Scotney Castle

I used to be a gardening nerd and dahlias were one of my favourites! So much variety and you had to dig them up in the winter and replant in the spring :) Fascinating!

They are out of fashion, currently, though.

That was in the original draft of the game.

Since the game is running so well I suggest at the end of this round we tidy the rules up a bit and follow the idea of the salon that the 'curator' copies the rules at the head of each new game.

It's probably worth letting the 'curator' break a log jam by posting twice or employing a somewhat liberal interpretation of a letter.

Insignificant flowers over but berries forming.

No, got a jasmin nudiflorum but I think nudes aren't allowed on this forum:D

Anyway I posted I so can't do J as well.
