    Any of you knows which plant produces this delicately beautiful flower? Can you guess? (I know the answer)
    Would our very own digital_flower_pictures know??? Maybe???

    OK, this last one more features the bee on the flower than the flower itself, but the question remains: what flower is this bee's "pit-stop"? ;)

    Oh my God… If I’m not mistaken, this is the blossom of the hallucinogenic Amazonian Trip Weed.

    Hmm.. Or not…

    Shhh! Daan!
    Don't give it away so soon!
    Dang... :grumpy:

    But sure enough that is what it is!
    It is surprising to see something so beautiful in so common a plant, isn't it?

    i was right? wow, just a lucky guess. I only see the potato's on a bag, never really saw the flower. Sorry to guess it so fast.
    And it is a nice flower, i do believe you can get pretty sick if you would eat them. But i guess you wouldnt eat the flowers anyway.
    Anyways........YAY ME :D

    A potato plant?? No way!! I’m convinced this is the hallucinogenic Amazonian Trip Weed!!

    Send me a few buds, and I’ll twist them up with gravy on the side. ;)

    Okay, just for you I'll go back to that field and nick a few flowers, then mail them to you and then we'll see what will happen to your photos in the future, :biggrin:!!!

    Since my photos generally suck… I’m thinking that some gravy laden hallucinogenic Amazonian potato flowers couldn’t do any harm!!

    I await the delivery with an open mind and shutter.

    I'm glad you do.
    Yes, I think the flower looks most delicate and very much its best in 2, too.
    Every year when the potato fields are in bloom here, I am amazed at the beauty of the flowers of something so common.......!
