We’ll have at least one set of wildlife photos this week, and here it is. But please collect any good ones you have to send me when I return in a week.
Today’s lovely flower photos come from Alan Clarke of Liverpool. His notes and IDs are indented, and you can enlarge the blossoms by clicking on the photos:

Two Echinopsis cactus hybrids:
Begonia ‘Marmoratta’. A garden hybrid.
A seed head of a Banksia:
The final photographs were taken at the Royal Horticultural Society’s new garden at Bridgewater, near Manchester, which opened this year. I have already been there four times!
Tricyrtis, the Toad Lily. Several stacked images to give plenty of depth-of-field.
And finally a Cosmos, again with stacked images.
