Black Bat Flower I am not sure whether it's the WHOLE flower that's the bat (it looks kind of bat-faced) or the middle part (pistil?) that also looks a bit like a tiny bat face. I love orchids; I love bats; and I love purple.
Love-in-a-mist Nigella damascena 'Albion Green Pod' - pure white flowers with a prominent boss of stamens framed by a collar of wispy foliage, creating a beautiful, ethereal effect. As the flowers fade, fantastic green seedpods develop.
