Wow what a beauty Sf, never seen anything like it! have no idea what flower this is, was it in a glasshouse? wonderful colours and detail – love this :0
No, it was in the main garden amidst the perennials, Jacky. Of course, there was no label and no-one around to ask.
Just discovered that it is an inula flower bud, Jacky – it produces large sunny yellow flowers!
That center is amazing. A beautiful flower.
Thank you, Carol!
Is this a wild flower??
I’m sure it’s a perennial – it was in a public garden amidst other perennials and annuals and shrubs.
I’ve never seen anything like this, it is just stunning and you did such a nice job with this. Fantastic detail!
Found it! It’s an inula bud. Thank you everyone for hedging guesses.
I’m so glad you told me, I tried this morning to find out what is was in my numerous books but was really stuck with this one lol it really looks lovely.
Amazing and beautiful. Excellent shot!!
well done!A touch of yellow
