Snapped a few shots on my way home through the valley yesterday.

The coloured parts are actually leaves and the real flower is the white part. :)

They colour their leaves to make them seem bigger so the bees/polinators will be more attracted to them.....:) They are like the "men" of the flower world....:laughing:
I'm glad I could make you cheer there Steve. :D:
