Spadices and Spathes

By pamelajean
Firstly, I have to thank Julia (NaturesHaven) for her Guest Editor Award, and Aidan (Ridgeway) for his User Award on my "Give Peace a Chance!".

So, here's another version of the spathiphyllums, or Peace Lily, this time with green and white spathes (large bracts that form a sheath to enclose the flower cluster), and green and cream spadices (the fleshy clublike spikes).
Several of you expressed an interest in this plant's air purifying qualities. It is one of the best plants for cleaning home air and ensuring that the ambience of your house remains pure and fresh.

Thankyou for your continued support for this flower series.

I do wish people wouldn't use words I cannot pronounce!Wink
Fortunately, I do not need to be able to pronounce the name in order to enjoy your image, Pamela. Good use of a fading bg colour, just right to contrast gently and unobtrusively with the main subject.
