  1. Very nice Ms Belle. Yellow petals against purple stigma, nice color combo! How's the fragrance like? Sweet, I suppose..

    1. Ash, I think the stigma is red but I'm not sure. I hardly notice a fragrance! This yellow colour looks good when it is combined with orange or salmon colour flower cultivars of the same species.


Yay! You like flowers too.
