Bessera elegans  (Bessera elegans (Coral drops))

One of the finds of the year!
I think that they would have done far better if we'd had a proper summer though.......

Your plants look much nicer Meanie away from the black background. Please continue this way....

i like this background but i also like the black ~ perhaps it depends on the plant?

Two more for you to look at on dark backgrounds Vavilla........

This is better on a light background Sticki because there's more in the shot.

they are just fabulous ~ cant help admiring them!!

so lighter background for busier shot?

Pro flash equipment would have made the Iris shot better by getting rid of the shadows.

I hadnt noticed them,
Makes me realise what a long way I have to go in taking nice photos!

Saw them Meanie.....I presume one is Iris or is it?
The other one I am clueless.....
Why no names Meanie.......
Very clear in every detail.........if it is Iris does it have a nice smell? Or is it a lily of some kind? We here are not familiar with flowers like these unless one is living in the hill country. I am living on flat ground down to earth!

You're correct - it is a dwarf Iris, not highly scented.
The other one is Alstromeria psitticina, a beautiful plant from South America.

I don't know what is going on here - I just posted a reply and it came up as being from Iciar!!!!!!!!!

My! How you've changed!!!

It's bizarre!

That must be one powerful anti-wrinkle cream you're using!!!
