Lovely pics Catch-up.

Has anyone seen this flower before? Called an Osiria Rose, the petals are white on one side and red the other. Pretty special eh? I think a bunch of those and a nice smile would say a lot.

Wow, that's really beautiful! It does look a little familiar.

Wow beautiful

With sixty seconds worth of distance run,

That rose is fantastic. If I had any luck with roses I would plant a bunch of those. Is anybody else having a good iris season?
Every knuckle that I replanted is budding and blooming. Woot!

That does look beautiful. There is a rose 'farm' somewhere close to where I live that could do with a visit later this year. :D

That is a lovely rose, SJ. I will post some pics of mine when they flower, but that may be some time yet (probably the same for anyone in NW Europe). At least my rose plants nearly all survived the winter, which was quite a surprise.

Ditto irises, Majomull. I have a lot that are in bud but no flowers yet. I had to check which state MA was :oops: but I think you have had a bit more spring than we have...

For one of my courses I have to make a herbar. I actually had all the plants I needed, but my nettle got mouldy and since that is a healing plant I wanted to get a new one. Well, you know how it is, you go out to collect a nettle and find all kinds of other stuff, too. Actually, I only wanted to collect medicinal plants, since I already have enough, but this one specimen kindled my curiosity. Send quite some time identifying it. Some of you might know it.
Here are some photos, because it is a curious and beautiful plant - quality is not so good, since I took the photos with a camera that was built shortly after Daguerrotype was invented ;)

That's beautiful! :) But I thought it was a triffid :shifty:

:D
I had to look up "triffid" - sounds fun.

Personally, before I knew what it was, I referred to it as the "Alien plant".

Very funky! It does look like an alien plant.
