These flowers are around my house.
The first photo was taken mid-June, less than 24 hours before the flower opened entirely. I took a photo the following day of the full bloom, but I found it less magnificent than the partially opened bloom. In this photo, you can clearly see the petals, stamen (filament and anther), style, and stigma.
The second photo was taken late Spring. It’s a peculiar and fascinating daffodil, known as a Peruvian daffodil (Hymenocallis). It’s native to South America – Peru, I believe – and is suited for zones 8 – 10. This means I will have to dig it up prior to the first frost. I find it extraordinarily elegant with its wispy spray of back petals. I suppose it’s worth a little hassle.PAID ENDORSEMENT DISCLOSURE: In order for me to support my blogging activities, I may receive monetary compensation or other types of remuneration for my endorsement, recommendation, testimonial and/or link to any products or services from this blog.
