    Does anyone else feel as I do about Philadelphus virgina (Mock Orange)? I find the scent nice at a whiff then nasty! Couldn't live with it. I pass a couple on my way to the shops and usually dash past.

    Unless you use Google image search, in which case it's eye-bright or touch-me-not or some sort of lily, depending on what mood the algorithm is in. :rolleyes:

    Bignonioides, according to Flora incognita.

    It also says don't eat the roots, they are poisonous.

    Some snaps of flower arrangements my wife placed round the house. These aren't meant to be documentary of how any arrangement looked from a distance, nor of plant forms (which are often better represented in mono). Rather, I was going for some kind of "rush of the senses" effect. Hence the goofy framing and off-focus. Handheld, domestic "warm white" LEDs or indirect daylight, 85mm lens.

    Like those. Would have left the fifth out, rather past its best.

    Thanks. I dithered over including #5. The idea was to introduce a reminder that it's all inevitably headed to death and decay. However, that shot does it very clumsily. Something to work on in the future.

    Red/pink flowers
    by SteveH, on Flickr

    Another flower that Google images decides is touch-me-not, and then gives me links to a film of that name?!?

    The flowers are about a centimetre or so long and a bit redder than the pic came out.

    But I do like the dancer on the left.

    I've been taking walks at dusk through the woods and fields near my house. Trees and plants, seen only as shadows in the gloom, start to appear as mysterious characters, surrounding and closing in on the lone human intruding on their nocturnal domain.

    Well, it's not a plant, but...

    All right, it's an animal, probably chicken of the woods.
