When I began photographing flowers I told anyone who would listen that it was far more important to me that I make a “good” image than know the name of the flower. So I photographed hundreds of flowers with no concern as to their identity. About the time I began this blog I realized that knowing a bit more about a bloom than “it’s appealing” might be a good thing and I began investigating the species I photographed. All this leads me to say that “I don’t know” the identity of this stem and certainly appreciate any information. Thank you all in advance.
