    1. Well this is rather embarrassing. These are from today’s visit to the Huntington Library & Botanical Gardens. I visited the Library and photographed the placards next to the Gutenberg Bible and the Canterbury Tales, but I rarely do the same for plants.
      But I just added 2 more photos to show the full flower. 😦

      1. Thanks! They look vaguely familiar, but I’ll be damned if I can come up with a name. But the lighting you caught is phenomenal. That makes up for the missing placard! 😀

  2. Yeah, what is it? Almost looks like magnolia to me.

    1. For sure not magnolia. They’re potted plants at the Huntington Botanical Gardens, and I just added 2 more images of the full blossoms. But sorry, I didn’t take a shot of the placard identifying the plant.

    1. Thanks Cindy. Yes very cool. I love the way those little furry bits catch the light.

    1. They look like the kind of blossoms that would last weeks & weeks.

  4. Just beautiful! They look like those exotic desert plants that have amazing flowers. The Huntington Gardens have an enormous amount of those. Which reminds me, I have to go back there. 🙂

    1. These shots were taken in the new & improved entry walk, before you get to the desert garden. Although, the desert garden is one of my favorite places for photography. So many birds & bugs & flowers. We will be jockeying for position!

  5. Beautiful closeups, M! I love seeing the details – as they say, ‘god is in the details’ – such perfection exists in nature. They look like Protea species to me, btw. 😉

    1. Now that you mention it, they do look like Protea. I wouldn’t know a Protea from a proton except for A used to bring home armloads of Protea when she did the wholesale flower report when we lived in San Francisco.
      Yes, god is in the details.
