I am watching a program "The Botany of Desire"... This documentary takes viewers on an eye-opening exploration of the human relationship with the plant world seen from a plants point of view. Based on the book by Michael POLLEN. :lol:

Wonder if his name influenced his career choice.

That's certainly going to make the workplace more colourful. :D We have something like eight species of orchid growing wild at Cissbury Ring near where I live which I might try and photograph on one of my walks (providing that I can recognize them).
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

No chance of flowers round here at the moment, I'll have to just think back to 4 years ago this month when I took this

Needless to say I wasn't in England :D
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Mad, those flowers look wonderful!

Nice photo, Con.

I had to look twice at your pic Mad.... its strange to see one of our common flowers show up on this thread.. its usually all cold climate flowers.

I have a full 6 foot high back fence covered in it. Three different colours though.
