Are they real or silk ? Whatever they are, this is a beautiful shot!

A superb one - 90% symmetry, which is according to my taste.

PS Thank you for the comment - when you visited Bergen your ship was berthed just to the left of that ugly "bunker" in the background of my photo.

OH Mac, one of my favorite all time flowers. I had them in my garden for a year and then they never came back (squirrels?) and I haven't been able to find the bulbs for sale again. You may have prompted me to do an internet search.

One of the advantages with blogging is that one learn new things from others all the time. I had never seen or heard about this flower before but now I've learned something new. Thank you!
