    1. Hi Kathy. Unfortunately it doesn't grow wild here. I had to go to the National Botanical gardens to get these shots.

  5. Det är något särskilt med grön-vita blommor. Jag kan liksom se en stjärna i den andra blommans gröna - bilden blir nästan rörlig. Kan det bero på livlig fantasi? Eller de nya glasögonen?

    Vackra bilder!

    1. Hej Ulla!! Nej, det är inget fel med dina nya glasögon, och det är inte din fantasi!! Mönstret i mitten av denna blomma orsakar en optisk effekt. Tack för din kommentar :-))

  9. wow so THATS what they look like. Is it the same thing that gets made supplements to boost the immune system?, if so, I've swallowed many of the pills but never seen the actual plant. Great photos Mitch, and an education too thanks :-)
