Lily Ponds, Edinburgh

Out again to take some more photos for work for my solo show next year in London.

I've been to the glasshouses in the Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh to look at the theme of lilies. I like the geometric reflections of the panes of glass in amongst the organic shapes of the water plants.


They have a giant amazonian lily flowering at the moment, with huge lily pads with cabbage-red edges.



Lovely subtle metallic colours...


And a few cheeky wee goldfish...


Of course, Edinburgh Botanic Gardens is host to the spectacular Amorphophallus Titanum, the world's largest and smelliest flower.  

Wow! here it is in its natural habitat, looking truly magnificent...

Astonishing!!

What a pity it was slightly past its best when I saw it...
