    Jackie, that’s very striking, and very appealing! I love tropical greenhouses! Nice photo.

    Amazing shot, Jackie! This one, I would entitle…”Heart on a string”!

    I should have more attention when studying botany as I have no clue what this is, but I like it and your photograph is stunning!

    Ha! That’s the biggest spadix on what looks like a variety of Zantedeschia (but I’m not sure) that I’ve ever seen. Fun & funny find.

    I wish I had thought of heart on a string.

    my favorite thing about these flowers is that they’re so sturdy yet look so delicate and lovely

    great close-up

    it’s been raining here for days and days and well – Biblical rain
    I’m making believe it’s Scotland 😉

    OK this is officially the longest spandix I’ve ever seen on an anthurium!

    I used to think anthuriums were cute, until someone pointed out that they’re actually quite suggestive and I’ve never been able to shake the connotation off. Ahem.
