    Thanks. I was told that they are called lilies of the Nile (or Agapanthus).

    Is no one going to say how great I am, considering I managed to capture my first name's initial written with clouds in the sky on #2? What has the world come to??

    I like the angle you shot from, a new and interesting perspective for flowers. I like #2 the best -no not because of your initial in the clouds ;), I just like the single flower against the open blue sky. By the way, have you every posted #6 [the blackboard]of your 'Winkler' set on TPF? I saw that on your site and just love it!

    Thanks. Yes, some also classify these as Alliums. See the Wikipedia entry.

    Thanks very much. I often struggle trying to find interesting angles to shoot plants and flowers. I like how these turned out, though.

    Regarding the blackboard shot, see here :)
