I haven't enjoyed looking at this flower in real. Girl you are poetic in your quote these days.

I haven't enjoyed looking at this flower in real as much as I was glued here.

Beautiful contrasting colors.

I'm so glad Chagall knew what he was talking about. Whoever said that art is an imitation of nature is correct.

Ash, it certainly takes a fairy to be able to take such a photo!
I'm truly amazed specially because my mother in law has quite a lot of these flowers in her "anarchist garden" and I haven't been able to grab all the beauty that comes from this flower!
