    Yes, I do think this flower would capture Georgia O’Keeffe’s imagination!
    And what a lovely,unusual shape.

    This flower is up there with monkshood (Aconitum), columbine (Aquilegia), and little pink elephant’s head (Pedicularis groenlandica) in my own personal “favorite western flower shapes” club. Unfortunately, it is also one I have yet to see in person. Thanks for the close-up!

    I would love to see the whole plant.. in person, of course. I have bleeding hearts in my garden, and they are wonderful. I called them the lady in the bathtub flowers when I was a child, and I still have to translate from lady in the bathtub to bleeding heart with some thinking before I am able to talk about them.
    This one was lovely though, and a truly amazing flower. Thanks.

    At first glance I thought that this was a picture of a cow skull. Upon closer inspection I see the similarities, but the beauty stands out. Thanks for allowing us this view of a beautiful flower.

    A rather feminine/phallic display of botanical dichotomy me thinks.
