Streptocarpella flowering in my porch on a sunny afternoon, making a triangle with the shadow.
I am trying to upload this on a default coloured backgroud without any success - I will keep trying. White looks wrong and its too delicate for black, grey doesn't work, but the wonderful pale blue ephotozine background will not upload .....yet

Great photo. I have lots of these which seem to flower all year round. I think they are also known as Cape Primrose.
Best wishes

Lovely capture of a Saturday Shadow, Helen...even if it is only Thursday when you uploaded! 😀
They seem have messed about recently with the format of EPZ. I always like to upload to a black background, which I feel makes the image leap out more, so not tried other colours. I also like to always add the map location of where I've taken an image so other EPZers can see where I took the shot(s), but today on clicking the Maps box it displays the message "This page can't load Google Maps correctly" and asks if I am the owner of the site! I've tried both Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge browsers and get the same. If it isn't broken, why fix it? I shall be reporting this anomaly 😠
