On impulse I bought a plant which caught my eye on a previous visit to the local garden centre. It is an Anigozanthos. This particular variety is sometimes known as the Red Kangaroo Paw or Red Kangaroo Foot.
A couple of close shots each made up with about six stacked hand held shots so not perfect but do show the beauty of the tiny flower:
Being a native of Australia it isn't exactly suited to our Winters so I don't know whether I will be able to keep it going through to next year.
Serif Affinity Photo Beta
If, like me, you have been using Affinity Photo Beta then you will probably have found out that the beta testing phase has finished and that version has stopped working. The only thing to do was buy the full version from the Mac app store while it is available at 20% off the full price. As a credible alternative to Photoshop I personally think it is £29.99 well spent. No cloud to have to use and pay for like Photoshop, just a one off payment for a versatile photo processing program which will no doubt keep improving for some time to come.
