Macro Monday: Feb 1


Hands up – a bit of a cheat since this is a holiday photo, but it is a plant that is commonly sold as a summer patio plant in the UK and Ireland!

    I would have said lantana. Mind you, without the clue, I was tempted to wonder if the cheat was that it was artificial! Close up, it looks as if it’s made of foam!

    I’m pleased to see the answer, as I thought it was mother had a long hedge of this, and I used to love looking at the flowers close up…I was really busy and did not have the time to put in the answer. My mother used to have a ladies magazine back in the ’60s when I was very little, and used to have close up pictures to guess…since then been hooked on the macro..but I am shortsighted!

      It would be wonderful to have a hedge of lantana but in some countries they are invasive – I struggle just to keep them alive! And well done for guessing right 🙂
