    Thank you, Daniel. What a perfect antidote to the official start of Winter (now that daylight savings time has ended). The clarity in both photos is great!

    The bright yellow is wonderful for a fall plant.
    These are great Photographs. I do like the links to go to to get more information.
    Thank you,

    Amaryllis occurs in an opera aria I believe and poems have been written about daffodils and odes penned to narcissus but who the hell would write a poem an ode or an aria to a sternbergia.
    Yeacch.
    Which begs the question if there are choices for a beautiful flower s or plant s names shouldnt the most poetic euphonious be chosen not the ugliest tonguetwister.
    Or even autumn crocus. That might still be swallowed.
    A rose by any other name would NOT smell as sweet quoth Juliet but she is bemoaning Romeos surname not analysing flower s names.
    So this beautiful flower might be a daffodil or an amaryllis or a narcissus possibly even autumn crocus but sternbergia? Never.
