    Glorious flowers eh? My mother has many in her garden - anyone know why the colour bleeds out so fast?
    $ days, and that wonder will be a neutral cream...

    Athyrium nipponicum var. 'Silver Falls' (Silver Falls Fern). Dunedin Botanic Gardens Feb 2010. I took two pictures taken at the same time with different ISO, apeture, and shutter speed, the other one looked like a boring patch of ferns.

    Oh okay: looking out the bathroom window of a funky old bach in the wilds of Banks Peninsula. Can anyone identify the flowers?

    This one might be of interest, in a composite image kind of way. A couple of years ago I took a scan of a picture of the Octagon from 1890 and tried to match the position of the photographer.

    Interesting ladder. You can picture the soon to be saved scuttling up to the roof and assuming the position, or whatever it is they do when awaiting the Rapture.

    Vaguely passionflowerish?
    Not banana passionflowers which (given they're a pest at Moeraki) I do know -something about the trumpets, something about the leaves & vine-like behaviour-

    hell, we need my cuzzies, - & my mother! - the ones who are deeply-knowledgable
    gardeners, and, to a person, despise Maggie whatsernaym-

    Falling off majorly I'd suggest-

    You want passionflower, I got. Or did have. Presumably it’s bursting into bud again right now over in Avonside, where I was forced to abandon it after Sept. 2010.

    Nice datura Hebe. I’ve always fancied one like that, ever since I saw a hummingbird feeding from one on an old Attenborough TV show. For aesthetic purposes of course, not recreational.

    when it comes to going

    I wonder how many times they’ve had to change the date on the bus?

    I am a nerd. I laffed when I saw the color channels on this one.

    Can't get a better colour combination than RGB!

    Aren’t brugmansias always trees?

    The few vividly coloured brugmansia/datura I've seen have been in hanging baskets, which was what impressed me so much about the one in Hebe's pic. A proper tree, and doing so well so far south.

    shades of night...

    This is the right colour.

    Solanaceae - it's a ruddy tomato...
    Angels' horn*, tree datura - what a family!

    *must be a Tuba!

    Solanaceae

    Most of this family are deadly. Except for the tomato and potato*! Where would we be without them....

    *speaking of tubers
