Thanks Antonio.Interesting comment!
"If a child whipped out they’re crayons and created a flower like this, they’d probably have some grown-up tell them, “That’s not what real flowers look like " tha's for sure :).i saw a doc once about the possibility of existence of alien life in universe and a scientist said one thing that stay in my mind until today. this sentence can be analized by the same prisma, he said that every thing we imagine exist's in the universe,because the possibilitys are infinit,millions of millions of galaxis,stars and planets and he began to give examples,like the capacity of flying that we dreamed for ages and finely achived,the incredble organisms that lived in extreme environements.like the termal underwater sea fumarolas,in wich exists gorgeous organisms living from metan gases,so when a human imagine a thing for strange that could be,probably that exists some where in universe or will exist in the futur :)this is the most gorgeous,bizarre,alien,etc...flower that i ever saw,i would give you the spotting of the day for this one:)
Have'nt worked with plants for a while so the brain cells are bit rusty ... PN spottings are jogging the memory nicely. Glad to help
Thanks so much VIv .You are awesome!
Had to dig real deep for this one, s'cuse the pun, but I knew I'd seen the flower before . )
:) No worries. I'm a bit tenacious and failed to ask before I searched.
Cindy , I apologize. I should have been more prompt about it.
Oh gosh, no wonder. I was looking for an hour at your local flora. You may want to update your spotting to include that in the habitat :) I hope you get an ID.
Thanks Antonio! It is from The Markham Arboretum.
