Pop Top on BOP

Every once in a while a Bird of Paradise flower will show this unusual phenomenon, when a second bloom comes out of the first bloom, facing the other way. I had one last fall and missed taking a picture of it, but I got lucky a second time.

Wow how awesome is that. I have never seen a bird of paradise. Gorgeous.

Wow, that one should definitely have a fiery name. You can almost see the flames dancing in yellow, gold and red.

That's gorgeous Sheila. I'm glad you got a second chance at photographing it then sharing it with us!
