Sinningia bullata by annied

Sinningia bullata

Not a Euphorbia this time - I still have quite a few more of them but identifying them when they are not flowering and the label just says "I am a succulent" can be frustrating.

Found this beauty in a nursery in the Blue Mountains last year. Emerald Forest (Sinningia bullata) is a relative of the African Violet. They produce a large above ground tuber that will continue to expand up to 20cm.
It’s mainly grown for its unusual crinkly foliage that has fluffy white fur underneath the new growth. It produces bright orange flowers most of the year.

This is a perfect label for the plant, You should send it to the nursery.

Sorry I am so late posting. For your Get Pushed what do you think of travel? I hope you can return the favour by challenging me to something.

@la_photographic we are in lockdown so not travelling anywhere except to the shops/work and back.
July 29th, 2021  
@annied That is still travelling but if you prefer something else what about food faces (either make a face with your food or make a face on a single piece of food)?
July 29th, 2021  
what a great find. Don't know this one.
August 2nd, 2021  
why do i get the feeling you are behind in posting again? I really should write things down, i thought of a good challenge for you the other day but now i cant remember what it about an interior , either a mundane slice of life or more styled suitable for house and garden magazine, depending on your mood!

Hello, I hope you have time for a get pushed challenge this week. You're challenge this week is to work with food photography.
August 22nd, 2021  
It appears that you have not been around to receive get-pushed challenges, lately. My challenge for you is to create a photograph with the theme, "coming back."

@tdaug80 @stephomy hey guys
I'm popping in and out....we are in lockdown here and I have been super busy with teaching online :)
September 1st, 2021  
Hi there! I'm your partner this week. If you care to do a get pushed challenge, how about "a slice of [your busy] life" .
September 13th, 2021  
@randystreat haha that will be a challenge as I am working from home and in lockdown but will give it a try :)
September 14th, 2021  
Me again with another Get Pushed challenge. What do you think of abstract because even if you can't leave the house this should still be possible? I hope you can return the favour by challenging me to something. Thanks.

Beautiful collages. Apologies for missing so much of your lovely work. I like how you managed to capture the texture and colour of the leaves and the bright orange flowers.
October 6th, 2021  
Once again we are partnered for Get Pushed challenge if you want a challenge what about creating your name (you can use a collage if you want)? I hope you can return the favour by challenging me to something. Thanks.

@catcarter19 Google researching is my friend - I love knowing what they are and where they're from

Annie, thanks for the challenge! It’s an interesting quote you’ve given me. For your challenge I’d like you to portray either too much or too little. Interpret as you’d like. How does that sound?

@mcsiegle thanks Mary :)

Hi Annie, thanks for your visit to my photo . . . it made me wish we could go for another photowalk together. Are you able to go to the zoo during this lockdown since it's an outdoor space or is it closed?
October 27th, 2021  
@jyokota zoos are just starting to reopen again 😊
October 31st, 2021  
Hi there. I'm your partner again this week. Please look at Summerfield's challenge "one week only - pandemic edition" and select a subject from one of those she has provided as your challenge.
