    because that flower will never bloom without those ants. they need to remove the skin and than it can bloom. the flower won’t open by itself. beautiful ;)

  • I didn’t know that, Manon…so cool! Thanks so much!

    apparently I am really wrong about the ants. I made a little search and read here. at least I learned something about this. people tell me things and I think it’s true. next time I will check it on the net to be sure it’s real ;)

  • I just saw your post Manon and read your link…it’s so nice to read that they have a harmonious relationship!

    Don’t like ants, I had a fight with a bull ant nest once, thought I would go crazy…They know there is something they can eat..Good shot Lynn….Shirley

  • Thank you so much, Shirley!
