June 2017 - Unusual Flowers

Postby Chris L » Sun Jun 04, 2017 7:30 am

I am going to pick this time unusual flowers.

This can be any weird flower that looks different to a normal flower, a flower with an unusual design, or a flower from a genus that we don't see very often (maybe a first time genus flower for you).

Hope this qualifies as unusual - the subtle shades of Pachyphytum compactum

I thought of this topic because this has flowered yesterday/today. Never had a Mila flower before. I've also spotted the mealy bug lurking near the top-right of the picture. :wink:

Here is my dishevelled Faucaria tigrina bloom last November.

For some reason I could not load them at <500KB file size, so had to take them down to about 250KB.

This happened to me the other day, Liz. I usually have no problem with JPG files of 500KB or thereabouts but I had to reduce a couple recently to a much lower size. :???:
