Great color. They sort of remind me of Hostess Snowballs.

Very pretty. It's just what we need on a gray and cloudy day in Boston. Have a great weekend.

Very pretty, Lois. But if they're blooming in your church's courtyard, shouldn't they be called "pietas?"

;-)

Have a bon weekend!

Interesting. I'm not familiar with this one at all. I wonder if they don't grow here in the Pacific Northwest. I'll have to dig out my Western Garden Book and read up.

PS: Thank you for the kind words. Those people have really been shaken up.

Very pretty. I have always liked these flowers. Here they are a short lived house plant. MB

Gorgeous - wonderful color. I don't think I've seen these ever before. That's another nice thing about Florida & Ca - blooms in October.
