-- if you know me, you picked the last name
-- as I do tend to 'name' my flowers

She opened today !
12 July 2016

Last year there were beautiful leaves and stems / stalks-
But no flowers -
Sigh -
So, I talked to every one that broke through the soil to try again -
Talking helps -
So does the rain !

There are 2 more buds -
Maybe .. just maybe they will also bloom !

It looks a little like the alien machines in 'War of the Worlds.' It's nifty!

Thank you, Ko - I find the shape of this so interesting .. considering that it starts out with a stem and cascading leaves ... nothing to give one the hint of a flower to appear ..

Just wandered around in your photos a bit -- I'm going back !

Thank you for your visit and comments .. have wandered to your photos and found them .. ahh.. there are no proper words ... they just 'grab' me and I return to see them again.

This flower is one I call ''Iffy'' .. If the weather is not just right - If the deer don't nibble - If iIf If ... one year it will bloom -- the next ... not at all !
But, when it does, I sit with my camera and get as many photos as possible !
So glad you enjoyed it !
