I also like what you have done. They look like postcards.

Not a lily, Mark ... a superb tree from Brazil ... Chorisia speciosa ... glad you like the images.  Thanks Paddy!

Cliff,

I saw Chlorisa speciosa on Madeira in October and was very taken by it, a beautiful flower. I didn't know what it was but had it identified on one of the forums.

So, are you designing postcards?

No, just playing, Paddy ... (unless the Mallorcan Tourist Board are interested, of course ... LOL)!

Saw three colour forms of Chorisia in the garden on Mallorca ... glorious sight.

You certainly need to contact the Mallorcan tourist board. I'm sure they would love to hear from you.

Excellent images and a great way to show them.

No Mark, they plied their motionless trade in the centre of Palma, along with Shrek, Pierrot, dancers, jugglers, angels, clowns and street musicians.  My grandsons loved them all!
