This beautiful flower, (the funeral flower of Tibet – according to the movie The Wedding Planner – howver I can find no support for that statement). It has always been a favorite in our garden. It likes shade so it has always resided near the porch in both this house and in the one in NJ. Kind of ironic that it is in the same place at both homes. I loved the colors and the drops of water from the rain we had received the night before. It took a long time to get the perfect shot though, as the wind was still blowing.
