Plant in West Dean House gardens

I'm afraid I don't know what it is but I liked the strong red stems/leaves, and the centre that looks like a golf ball - we both thought that!

Hope you're having a good weekend. Enjoying the Olympics and British success! Pleased for Holland and Belgium too - shame the women's hockey gold medal couldn't have been shared between GB & Holland. But at least the Dutch girls won it in 2012 in London :)
Lovely variety of colours and shapes

I see that the experts say it is from the bromelia family. It looks very similar to the pineapple plant. Great FAV capture.

Yes, haven't we done well in the Olympics! It seems ironic that we can do so incredibly well in an international event and yet we're shrinking away by exiting Europe...
