Tiny Tuesday . . . Celebrating 175 Days
It was a lovely morning to go hunting for something tiny in the garden. I had an ant but it's antennae were fuzzy. I had a honey bee but I've done that before. I had blue stamen on an Iris but it was this white Kakabeak flower that won. It is a rare plant in the wild but popular as a garden plant. The curving petals are fabulous hanging down with their creamy whiteness against little green leaves. I brought this one inside and put it on the black top of the fireplace. When I moved it I noticed yellow pollen but couldn't see where it came from. I prized one flower open and found there are several fine stamen. I think macro photography should reveal to us something usually unseen. So here are petals and the stamen from this lovely native flower to celebrate TT175.
What a wonderful idea Walking Wombat had to start this challenge.
