Yes they are. They are a beautiful colour for the first few weeks when they come through. It's a species paeony and the fruits are supposed to be very colourful but it's been too small to flower for me yet.
These bulbous little items were bought bare-root at the Christmas market.
The seller said that they're not orchids, but I think it's pretty obvious that they are. He said to put them in the ground, so maybe he thought all orchids grew in trees. Whatever, they had nice roots on them and buds developing. Now, @ a month after planting, they look as though they might actually do something.
Yes, I would say fairly exotic in that the bright yellow petals are indispersed with thin red stamins?Maybe they are other petals - haven't really looked too closely in the past but hopefully the one that appears more open will flower before I leave on Sunday.
Your Haworthia has the most beautiful little heart-shaped leaves Mick! Can't wait to see the flower soon.
That is certainly a beautiful photo taken of the Pont de Tolbiac looking towards the Bibliotheque Nationale de France(Fr.Mitterrand) on the right. I agree Bixa, it has a 'Japanese' feel to it with the buds on the trees!
