Exceptional view of the flower and great to have the added feature of the use of it for medicinal purpose also.

Mine's "Amaryllis by Morning". Do stop by to view if you get a chance.

Thanks for the image and the link, I followed a few and one said "...Is also employed in hysterical complaints" ... perhaps we should start dosing some loud politicians with it ... :)

... ps the word I have to type to prove I'm human is "prego" ... I love pregos ...
