  1. So: all these several dozen Bel Ami sets painted as what we all thought of as nurseries, turn out to be descended from Nature? Please don't offer this defense to them, if you can avoid it.

    Hauntingly sexy, even if you haven't an interest in botany.

  2. That's a particularly lovely lily species! (I do have a gardening interest, and lilies are among my favorite flowers.)

    And yes, I do think there are lilies that have sex appeal. They aren't as famously that way as orchids often are, but still!

    Here's another drop-dead gorgeous sexy wild beauty: Lilium formosanum

  3. Yes, formosanum is indeed sexy. Lustful. No kidding.
