Isn't she lovely?

I can't help myself...this is one of my favourite flowers. Unfortunately I have absolutely no clue what it is. Update! This last one is for Mel! Although this flower has seen better days, you can see what I meant about the black seed interior...fabulous!

Hey Mel! My camera is just a Kodak point and shoot, bottom of the line. The flower on the other hand, yowsers! In Hawaii, this tiny little flower was larger than my fist! A large stalk was covered with these in various stags of bloom. No photo shop on this, it was just that colour, vibrant pink! The inside of the flower was jet black...amazing!

Wowsers, that is Amazing! I love the seed pods of almost everything, I had to give up my collection though when bugs got into it.

She is beautiful. Out of curiousity, I looked her up for you. It is a Nicolaia elatior, commonly called "Torch Ginger"

Another gorgeous photo, S'mee!
