Let the black flower blossom as it may.

September 2nd, 2013, 3pm

Kennedia nigricans. The bud is entirely black, the open flower black and yellow. Native to the southwest of Western Australia, but the specimen pictured here grows by my back door. The quote is from The Scarlet Letter (Nathaniel Hawthorne).

Paul, Cassie and Gabrielle said thanks.
