This flower is so gorgeous! It makes me want to get married again just so I can use it in a bouquet.

That would be married again with my Papi. Just thought I should clarify.

Thought your wordless Wednesday would be a tribute to Marcel Marceau, who spent more time wordless than most of us.

Chris in Oxford said...

Wow! Is this photo altered or is this what the flower looks like normally. If the latter, it's a crazy variety! Happy WW!

Glennia said...

It's amazing that such things exist in nature. Gorgeous!

hana said...

wow! amazing i havent seen any like that.

Renegade Eye said...

It's already Wordless Wednesday again.

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone. I will admit I did alter brightness and contrast to accentuate the lines on the versicolor. It is a real flower and looks pretty much like this in real life.

It is a small but perfectly formed flower

That's a beautiful pic, Shaunie. I love geraniums, and have loads in my garden, which have self-seeded everywhere.

Vixen said...

I have never seen anything like that. What an amazing flower and picture.

Thanks everyone. It is a real flower, although lighting and contrast changes have exaggerated the colours.

Seriously cool picture.

Pinks & Blues said...

Ahh... this is spectacular!! I must show mu husband this. He LOVES geraniums... as do I. They are very beautiful flowers. I planted a fertility garden when I was trying to conceive my 3rd son and I planted pink and white geraniums all over. They calm me and just are gorgeous!
GREAT WW!
