    That really is a lovely flower John, I'm glad you immortalised the fragile thing with this image.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Beautiful flower, great shot! Did you by chance get a close up of the critter on the stem?
     
  4. Thanks for the comments. I have had three emails on this I will be out today in search of that bug.

    I was very happy to find that our Toad Lilies had survived the winter (I read somewhere that they weren't very frost resistant - but they are thriving). They are just starting to flower here, but have been battered by some serious rain which we have been having for the last few days.

    Seriously weird flowers - they just cry out to be photographed up close.

  7. Nice shots those are monsters. Mine are small and delicate just like me :) 

    Sorry that critter was not available. These were though :)
