Is that an orchid? Very nice mysterious pic.

Pauline said...

Even when I enlarged that picture it appeared as something out of Alice in Wonderland! What an amazing little creature that flower is!

Tracey Petersen said...

I need words! Tell me what this mysterious beauty is....

Isabelle said...

Yes, I want to know too. I think it's an orchid, but it's a very strange-looking one. For an awful moment, I feared that it was Molly's grasshopper, dissected. Ugh. But actually not.

Diana said...

It's real?

It's cool.

It's some sort of vegetation.

It's coooooool.

Molly said...

Does it grow in Ireland? It looks too exotic.....did you take the picture on your travels? Was it hiding in the overgrown garden where you found that beautiful and mysterious door?? Words! We need words!

D'you like my new colors? Aren't they lovely!

Reminds me of the flowers in Alice in Wonderland, but in a good way.

I awarded you with a thoughtful blogger award on my page... please drop by when you get a chance, and pick it up.


Best,
Scarlett & Viaggiatore

Hey, everyone, do ya think Rise has figured out it's not Wednesday anymore, so she can now tell us what it is? :)

Tracey Petersen said...

Good point, Aunty. I fear that she is secretly delighting in our uncomforatble silence as we eagerly await the words that will end our wondering.

O.K. Aunty AND Tanya ...

Never mind that, currently, I'm a snivelling, blithering half-wit, being bullied and stampeded by No. 1 daughter into a corner because I live in what closely resembles a pig-sty (in her eyes) who has decided I need a kick in the pants i.e. HER, to put order on the chaos that we, tenderly, call home. Never mind that I am now sitting in a kitchen that closely resembles London during the Blitz ... Never mind that the back garden resembles a sweat shop in Calcutta with HER and her minions beavering away at MY door presses, with dust and noise to rattle the cockles of your brain ...

Never mind this. The important thing is that I remember that it is NOW Friday and I must attend to more cerebral activities.

It is a flower.

What kind??? I haven't the foggiest.

I was attracted by its shape when the Molly and I were trailing around a hot house WAY back in June. I DID read the description AND the name but, unfortunately, having the concentration span of a goldfish, I am, now, unable to retrieve this information.

I hope you are not TOO disappointed.

Its still COOL though, isn't it??

Am away to the peace and calm of the rocks of the Burren for a couple of days ...HOPEFULLY, taking Mein Fuhrer ... oops, of course, I mean, Dearest No.1 daughter, with me, where with a bit of luck, I won't drown her.

Aunty Evil said...

Gee, you sure take the long route to a short answer, don't you? :)

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

Got my attention!

Tanya Brown said...

Wow; what a nifty, elaborate plant that is. Thanks for posting it!

Molly said...

That, Aunty, is because us Irish are blessed [or maybe cursed] with the Gift of the Gab. Try not to be jealous. If you're a good girl in this life you might be Irish in your next....

Sorry to hear that you're having a rough time of it - but I'll be thinking peaceful thoughts for you.
Best wishes

mjd said...

I am thinking orchid as well, very unusual.

Hi Rise - have just noticed your comment on Paulz Blog. He's a great guy - 84 (or maybe 83) and full of fun. He was the second blog I came across and he and I write to each other (by email) several times a week. Do keep checking him out.
