This beautiful Lily has a delicious scent - I have never seen a double version of this particular striped Amaryllis (Hippeastrum) before.

Leo - thank you for your visit - and for the great compliment!!

I am very happy that you like the Lily so much!!

Saluti, Hazel

Anne - Thank you for the nice compliment, this Lily was single when I got it in bud last year, and now it is a double one, with another bud appearing - so I'm very pleased!! But I have had to bring it into the house as the rainwind was starting to bruise it.

Warm wishes, Hazel

This shot is breathtakingly beautiful!! Really amazingly good Hazel! Sharp in all details of the flower. Not to speak about the flower itself, which is also perfectly shaped and coloured. I can imagine that you put the lily inside the house to keep it save. It's a jewel!

Greetings from Ria

Wat een baie mooie bloem laat je hier zien Hazel. Leuk detail vind ik het bloemetjesgordijn op de achtergrond.

Groetjes Nico

Lovely flower shot Hazel. Nice light and perfect detail. I can imagine you wanting to keep it safe from the rain and wind and you will also have the lovely scent in your house.

How great of you all to visit (and greetings to the Very Good Cook, too, please GeKo) and thanks for all the lovely comments.

I am so glad you like my Amaryllis Lily. I have already commented on Tullio's beautiful Lily in his Gallery. It is well worth looking at!

My warmest wishes to you all, and thank you again.

You and your family warm greetings from the autumnal Germany,

This is fantastic. One of the sharpest pictures I've seen today.

And pink is my favourite colour so I'm a bit biased.

You guessed it, my "favorite". I give up! :)))
