Abutilon "Kentish Belle" by peadar

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!

@peadar Happy new year, mister! Onwards and upwards, eh?

@casablanca And to you, many thanks. We've been dog-sitting for my daughter for the past two weeks so our world has been a little weird (we don't have pets ourselves). I am still hoping to get back to 365 at some stage. All the best for now.

@casablanca Hello there, and thank you, all well. I've started a new work contract, but in London this time, so with the daily commuting I find I have little time or opportunity for photography. We're all doing well thank you, no Covid or anything else, and daughter about to have her first child 😀. Hope all well with you and the family.

Hope you are well (and still making delicious meals ;) ), and the grandchild must be almost a year now!

@lmsa Hi Louise, thanks for the message. I'm very well, thanks, and granddaughter Persephone is 10 months and 4 days and an absolute delight. I keep thinking about starting another 365 but can't quite get in the mood! Hope all is well with you and best of luck for 2023.
