"Abstraction" was in my recent exhibit. I "found" it in the shadows of that favorite stand of striped leaves on our grounds. I really enjoy watching these blooms go from a graceful spear head, to all those little buds, to glorious big flowery globes. (From using a quick google image search I believe they may be some sort of haemanthus.)

Here's a photo of one of them just past full bloom. It's one of my oldest and not a great pic but it gives you an idea of what they look like if you're not familiar with the type. I see them around here also in blue and in purple:

And here's a recent, somewhat better pic of this flower in various stages of opening, titled "Answering the Sun":

Which is exactly what I'm about to do once I check my emails ... answer the call of the sun. Even though it's a hazy day, this sort of lightly veiled light can sometimes make for good pix.
