Bromeliad – February 2008
Behind my father's house, the house where I grew up, there is a shady slope that never had enough sun for plants to thrive – until the day that he planted the first bromeliads. They loved their new home so much that they proliferated and now cover a substantial piece of the slope. I love their exuberant flowers and subtle shading from hot pink to deep purple, and I doubt I will ever be able to see one without thinking of my father and his garden that he loved so much.
This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister – previously featured photographs can be viewed on the Saturday Snapshots compendium page. Photos featured in Saturday Snapshots are available to buy as high-quality greeting cards or prints in my RedBubble store, or even as gorgeous A3-size 2011 CookSister calendars for foodies, for London-lovers, Italophiles or beach lovers.
If you want a custom calendar with your own selection of photos, starting in a month other than January, please e-mail me and we can discuss your requirements. They make great gifts, for friends or for yourself
