Photo Hunt - Delicious


The subject for this week's entry for Photo Hunt is delicious. I don't have any nice food photos so here's a photo of the only thing still in bloom at the moment apart from the hebe. This is Zaluzianskya capensis (or Midnight Candy), which has a delicious candy scent - just like dolly mixtures. And there you have another photo which has only a tenuous link to this week's theme!

But what a wonderful photo. And smelling like dolly mixtures - that's cute.

That's a lovely photo and works well for the delicious theme. A delicious scent is a meaning I considered but ended up being more pedestrian. Have a great weekend.

jams, a beautiful photo! Is it a peppermint scent? What are dolly mixtures?

JesieBlogJourney said...

Joke aside some communities eat flowers too. So your beautiful fragrant flower must taste good too.

Colin Campbell said...

Glad you could come up with a tenuous link. I think that we are all close to that on many weeks.

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone. oh btw, dolly mixtures are small soft candies and sugar coated jellies.

BlurMommy said...

It's gorgeous! I can't imagine a candy-scented flower. I think it would have me wanting candy whenever I smelled it. :-)

So beautiful!

I remembered when I was still a child, my friends and I tried on chewing some deliciously sweet-smelling flowers... and those were indeed sweet! We didn't swallow it, though.

tenuous? Nah! Just creative!

elasticwaistbandlady said...

I'd like to stuff one of those beauties in my mouth while I dance the tango!

Well, not really. Maybe more like stick it behind my ear so I look like an exotic beauty while blogging.

Sabine said...

Beautiful photo - and nice take on the theme too, not to mention my gratitude to get a break from drooling! (I'm beginning to get a little wary of all the food stuff this week!!!)

Happy New Year! :)

Siani said...

I think your interpretation of this week's theme is inventive and original, rather than tenuous. Great pic of a lovely flower. Have a great weekend!

My PhotoHunt is up at Siani's Pot-Pourri.
