Abutilon "Kentish Belle"

I've not had much time or opportunity for photography the past week or so, but on an unexpectedly warm and sunny October day, here is a shot from the garden. We discovered this variety of Abutilon about 18 years ago and it grew successfully around our front door of our house at the time, attracting lots of bees and other insects during the summer months. When we were refurbishing our garden this year, we created a special spot for this new "Kentish Belle" and it has flourished! It is also commonly known as Chinese Lantern or Flowering Maple. Apparently it was a favourite of the Victorians!
Lovely warm image and flower!
