Up close and personal 6

Did you work out that it was Tropaeolum peregrinum – canary creeper? Well done if you did.

So how about this one?

This is really tricky but I love the gold dust on the tepals (clue there!)

    Okay, I’m going to guess its a pelargonium….but I’m pretty sure I’m wrong.

    Gazania, based only on the clue that they are from SA. I can’t remember if they’ve a dusting of golden pollen though! I haven’t managed one yet – other than 1/2 first one! Yesterday’s I thought Alstromeria, except I thought it not the right shade of yellow. I have never actually seen that Tropaeolum! You wouldn’t like to give us something we might have in our gardens?!?

    I was going to suggest a dahlia, but I thought that would be way too common for Geoff! I bet you’re correct Joy 🙂

      well hold that thought – but no, its not a dahlia – think Cork hedgerows including Baltimore
