I visited the botanical garden six times over the past week to get some photos of the Chihuly exhibit being dismantled but, I didn't spend all my time watching workmen handle the glass. I just checked the total number of photos I have for all those visits and it comes to 476 and that doesn't count the 120 or so that I deleted. As always, there was plenty to see and to photograph.
Take for example the photo above. While I walking in the herb garden area, a nice man told me he found a gorgeous red flower hiding behind some other plants making it barely visible. He gave me directions to where he saw it and this is what I found. It really is a beautiful flower. There was no sign to tell me what type of flower it is; I just know I'm glad I saw it. A special thanks to that nice man for pointing me in the right direction.
Remember the June theme is "Zest".
UPDATE: I can't believe I found this flower by doing a Google search but, I did. It's called an Equestrian Starflower (Hippeastrum equestre). You've gotta love Google!
