I've not seen one of these before - and can't decide whether I want to say 'isn't that beautiful' or 'oh! Yeuch!'

Such an elegant picture of an elegant flower taking by an elegant gardener.

But before I beome to lyrical: my toadlilies all croaked it this year. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Wonderful photo, I love Toad Lilies!

Sadly mine seem to have died??? I really need to replace them because they are wonderful when you get close...

Love those toad lilies. I've never seen one in person, but can imagine the fascination with this plant from the pictures.

Wendy said...

I like these too! I'm thinking it'd be perfect in my shade garden - orchid like in their beauty, interesting leaves, and shade loving, right?

Lucy - I bet you'd really like this if you could see the whole plant. (not complaining about the close up! very pretty!!)

Wonderful picture - because it shows just what nasty plants these are. I always think they're looking at me.

I can not even compare it with any other plant, it is so different. It looks kind of mystical on your picture.
P.S. I want to compliment your blog's design. It's simple, not busy, nothing distracts a reader from a post. Very nice.
