A botanist I’m not. I can tell a flower from a tree, but don’t ask me what type of flower it is. I can recognize the majors; roses, daisies, sunflowers, tulips and such. But if it’s something unusual, I’m speechless.
Walking through the Houston Zoo, there were several flowers that screamed, “Hey, over here! Forget the mean looking lion and come check me out.” It’s hard to ignore such a pretty flower like this, so I accepted its invitation to admire its beauty and take a quick shot. Feel free to comment if anyone knows what kind it is.
