Wonder flower!!!



Älkää kysy mikä tämä on, en todellakaan tiedä. Kyllähän minä sitä kysyin ostotilanteessa mutta se poistui aivoistani saman tien. Tää on niin hauska kukka mun mielestäni. Se tuntuu sormissa ihan sametilta ja kuten lähikuvassa näette siinä on karvoitusta joka tekee sen pehmeäksi. Minusta se muistuttaa myös korvasientä takenteeltaan tai merenalaiset korallit tulee kans mieleen, siis ihan käsittämätön. Jos joku sattuu tietämään mikä on nimi tälle ihkulle ole hyvä ja jaa tietosi tollon kanssa:)

Don't ask me what this is , I really don't know. I did ask the name when I bought it but I forgot it right away. I find this so funny and interesting. It looks like one mushroom Gyromitra esculenta and as you can see in close up it is kind of hairy so it feels like velvet. This is so inscrutable that I really want to show you all how creative nature can be. If someone knows the name or any information please do let me know so I can share it:)

  2. Cockscomb.
    Celosia.
    How I loathe them.
    Even though you did your best to make them look good. Sorry.
    Now you'll never speak to me again :-)

  4. Nature is amazing, this is wonderful. It's quite other-worldly. (And like Elizabeth I was also thinking that it kind of reminded me of the contours of a brain)! :D

  5. I love cockscomb! My mother always used to grow it in her flower garden when I was young. A rainbow of colors are available and I think they are such an awesome plant. Great photos, Henrietta! :)

  14. Henrietta, that's a great shot of the red velvety convolutions of this amazing plant. Apparently, it is not only ornamental, but edible as well!

  19. I believe it's also in the same family as Love Lies Bleeding (one of my favorites). This one also comes in bright yellow and purple I think too. They look like brains to me, HA!

  20. Beautiful flower -- even if it looks a little like brains ;)

    Fabulous image and photo, Henrietta!

  27. Komea, liekehtivä kukonharja! Muistuttaa kuvioinniltaan Keniassa näkemääni aivokorallia, se tosin oli melko harmaanbeeciä.

  28. Kuvasta palautuu mieleeni puisto, jossa vierailin Thaimaassa asuessani vuosia sitten. Siellä näitä oli isoina kasvustoina ja erisävyisinä. Häkellyttävä näky.

  29. Amazing detail Henrietta! I agree it looks like a red brain!

  30. Very beautiful and funny flower! I saw your pphoto in the creative exchange. Your name is as same as the heroine of the novel written by Honore de Balzac named 2 A lily in the Valley.

  31. Tosi hauska, mullekin tuli ensi silmäyksellä aivot mieleen. Tosi jänniä hetuloita siinä. Kuvat on kyllä tosi hienot molemmat, jälleen kerran. ;))
