John & Giles,

Lovely shots from you both. I think the American name for Actaea pachypoda is a good one, "Doll's Eyes".  It's a  nice plant in the garden.

Giles, you opened my eyes for biarum marmariense and Empodium. Thank you.

Just was thinking exactly what luc has just said. I think if I lived close to Wisley I might become a fixture there.
Enjoyed the pictures thanks for showing 8)

Wonderful pictures John and Giles!
John your picture of the Bessera flower is outstanding. I tried yesterday to make some, but they are always moving  ::)

Sadly Luit died on 14th October 2016 - happily we can still enjoy his posts to the Forum

I took 10 photographs and this was the only one in focus.  How did I ever cope without a digital camera?...    ;D

stunning pics John,does the earth star have an odour?it reminds me of Rafflesia. Is it parasitic?sorry about so many question but plants like this just grab my attention.

Sorry Davey - I've just spotted your question.  I've no idea of the answer though.   ::)  I just liked the look of it so took a few photos - some sort of mushroom/fungus I presumed  :-\.  Hopefully someone else will know more info.
