    Daniel, your photos are always beautiful and informative. Thanks for educating me.
    Elizabeth, your comments would be much more interesting if you would learn to punctuate and capitalize. Proofreading your post before you send it would also help.

    Hello Maggie, first of all – not my photo this time (though I wish it was!).
    To defend Elizabeth a bit, I think she is being somewhat poetic with her comments. I’d rather have poetic comments than none at all!

    Sweet and lovely photograph. Thanks also for the info on the species.

    I am told that the ability to detect Boronia perfume is controlled by a single gene. I don’t know if that’s true, but I do know that I can’t smell it (sigh). It’s certainly true of NZ Alseuosmia species, which my friends can smell from feet away and I can’t – different family from Boronia – same gene?

    It almost looks like marzipan flowers coated in icing sugar or maybe caster sugar. I can’t help having my mouth water at the sight.

    Just beautiful. The selective focus of the photograh really is great. What wonderful colours. It is really nice to learn more each day.
    Thank you,

    I enjoy all the comments and especially Elizabeth’s with her stream-of-consciousness imagery of Florida and her ability to express her appreciation of the natural world.
