Eye Candy

This series presents only one special and rather interesting flower from the Gardens at Waters East.  Here are a couple of photos of the same plant, so that the plant can be seen and studied for its unique beauty.

The plant in this posting is a Spider Lily (for the life of me I can not think of it’s botanic name, if you know let me know).  It is a very delicate and interesting blossom measuring 7 – 9 inches in full bloom.  The bulb is brought in every Fall for protection, then replanted again the next warm Spring day.
Do enjoy the viewing.

NOTE:   Since this Blog is meant to be an accurate journal of the gardens;
no photos are “staged”, “arranged”, or ”photo-shopped” in anyway.
What is posted – is what it here.  It is what it is.
