This is certainly a stunner Colleen - it looks like it could belong to the flowering cactus range. Smile

About 15 degrees here this morning, Colleen, and damned cold, with rain and a strong northerly wind blowing, think spring is taking a rest again Sad A beautiful image, what an unusual flower, hope you get an ID for it. Carol
