"Oh, wind, if winter comes, can spring be far behind?"
(Percy Bysshe Shelley)

Taken with the 'Nik' on macro mode.  This is the inner workings of a florette on the Gymea Lily.  These grow in clusters on a spike and can reach well over 10 feet in height. This was a cultivar, not the wild variety.  Still very pretty and the best you'll get from me on the day of llurrrrvvvvvvvv....


  1. Beautiful!! And I do hope Shelley is right!!

  2. And a very happy jolly St. Valentine's Day to you, too, my dear Yam.
    You seem to have survived the wind, which can't have been what Shelley meant, I'm sure.
    Long story about a fellow blogger who had a hole in his fence, through which birds chose to enter his garden rather than flying over the fence, which they could do quite easily.
    During the wind storm, the question of "to fix or not to fix" became moot when the whole fence blew down. Or, as my husband the punster said just now, "You mean the hole fence."
    Luv, K

  3. What a lovely photo! I feel spring. I do!
