April is a square month and this year Becky wants us to find the bright things in life. I had a few ideas all relating to Cornwall of course with my coruscating seas and cloudless skies, happy, shiny people and bright lights, but then I decided upon showcasing all the bright and beautiful flora found in the county as a tribute to the first ever Squares in September 2017 which was all about flowers. So prepared to be dazzled.
Remember the only rule is that your photograph MUST be square. Day Twenty-one

Gorgeous. Have you ever grown them? I would love to try, maybe if I ever get a conservatory I could try
No. Never. TBH I don’t much like them other than in the wild.
ah I like them in bouquets!!
Long lasting at least.
Yes 🙂 that has to be an upside!
That’s lovely. It’s a ….?
Protea, Margaret! Jude won’t be out of bed yet 🙂 🙂
Thanks Jo. But come on, the day’s half over!
Thanks. Jo was anxious not to keep me in the dark, but it’s good to know she’s Quite Right.
She probably read the tag 😂
Ah, I thought I’d looked, but obviously not hard enough …
I think it depends what you read the post on, they don’t always show up on my phone.
That’ll do me!
That’s lovely – a very unusual looking flower.
Some are stranger than others. I like them in their natural habitat (Western Cape) but not so much elsewhere, though as Becky has said they do last for a long time in a bouquet.
They seem almost plastic some of them – and yes, I do agree they last a long time in a bouquet! 🙂
Another cracking shot. I was tempted to lean forward to smell it! 🙂
Best wishes, Pete. x
No scent I’m afraid.
