An Unusual Flower

By handlerstudio  
When I was at a craft show in Upstate New York, I was staying with friends. I saw this flower and had to photograph it. Never seen anything like and, and I have no idea what it is.

I am sending this from my 90 year old mother's computer. I hope everyone is enjoying their families, and having a wonderful holiday season.

My time is limited for viewing, some from here, some from mu iPad (a slow way to look at images). So, in advance, my apologies for limited looking.

I have seen something similar on epz. I think the epzer named it by a highly technical name... "Bottle Bush Flower"..!
It makes for a very pleasing image.
