A mystery flower..

Some plants are really very tough.  Despite the amount of work done in our garden over the last few years, a few plants from its earlier incarnations still mange to pop up.

Last summer this one made it to flower - I (well my wife thinks!) that this is a "pine-apple lilly".  I have nothing more to offer!

I am very behind with replies to comments - to many Christmas things to do, and places to be.  But I will get there one day!



You can find more macro shots at Macro Monday 2 and I Heart Macro.  SM

  5. It is lovely!
    Whatever the reason for getting it out of the old garden, I would certainly welcome it into the new. Unless, of course, it turns out to be highly invasive. But surely such a pretty thing would not misbehave!

  11. It's beautiful! I'll probably be taking some days off from blogging over Christmas. But I'll be around, reading blogs hopefully, but maybe not commenting so much til after Christmas.

  12. You don't see green flowers very often! Beautiful. Don't worry about being behind on comments....this is a busy season for everybody and after all blogging is a hobby not a second job (or a first one in my case ;>)!)
