Isn't this a facinating flower? The painting is wonderful with the pinks and greens. I've never actually seen this flower. YOu are lucky to have found them.

blaga thankyou ...the green is quite striking during the winter months especially on cold misty mornings .

thankyou katharyn ...stopped here after 3 layers .. could add some darks .

thankyou ann ...just one flower head was starting to open up..they are often high up along the footpaths on the old dry stone walls ...the touch of red is beautiful
