We have a lot of this plant in pots around our house. J calls it a pickle, it looks a little like a spiky gherkin. Occasionally we are rewarded with this wonderful display of flowers. These particular plants are all crammed into a rectangular concrete pot outside our back door. They would have got about 6 inches of rain while we were away, no wonder they’re doing this now! The flowers are so delicate, such a contrast to the nasty pickle, and they’ll only last a short time. I’m glad I was home today to photograph them.
