Just in case you were wondering, the new header picture for my blog is Chrysanthemum ‘Orange Allouise’ bought as a plug plant from Sarah Raven in April 2011 and propagated into 5 further new plants this March from basal cuttings. It is utterly gorgeous, like dripping creamy butter, and I hope to keep it going for many years to come. The header picture has been cropped a little so here is the full shot with water droplets after a shower of rain.
She is indeed very very beautiful!
Don’t usually go mad for anything yellow but this looks sensational – and beautiful shot David.
Thanks Jeanne. I was very happy with it too. It is rare to find a flower with so many petals and out in all weathers that isn’t blemished but this one was perfect.
