    That’s cute.
    Its about one-of-a-kind as much as Mt. Laurel flowers are before they open.
    Very unique.
    The bits of blue add nice accents.

    Beautiful. Looks like a stigma inside the blue bits, wondering what the red & brown bits are anatomically?

    hi Daniel, I look every day at your site and the beautiful images, make effort to follow what you write because, on one side do not know enough good English and at this moment am engaged to recover my French for my French Blog, would like to put the link to your site to be able to put the photos you publish on the French site and possibly that Italian, with a certain regularity, if you are not sorry, hi and wishes,

    Ingrid, I think the brown bits are simply senescent petals. The pink bits, I believe, are bracts (compare with this photograph of Billbergia and imagine everything in that photo much compressed).
    Gabriella, please go ahead.

    Gabriella: yes, you can use at least some of the photos. The ones I take from UBC have this license attached. The photographs from other contributors usually have similar licenses, but it is best to check the license with the original image (i.e., follow the link to the original image and view the license)
