Well, I bought myself some new flowers on Friday night.  

They are called Alstroenemia,  commonly called the Peruvian Lily or Lily of the Incas (I bet you are really impressed that I knew that, I know I am, lol).  

Aren't they pretty?  I was looking for something a wee bit different. There were plenty of roses and carnations etc., but I wanted a change. So I spotted these and they ended up in my trolley.

I love flowers!!

They are beautiful Ellie. Looks like there are some buds so should last a good while.

Hi! Dearest Ellie,
Oh, I hope they are the same flower I see here in Japan in the store as well. Thank you very much for letting us know the name. I like them because flowers stay alive long♬♬♬
Your pictures are beautiful, my friend!!!
Blessing to you from east, xoxo Orchid*

Hi there - they are cracking looking flowers, even if the are a bit gaudy for my tastes!!

Glad you like the mushroom - I was rather surprised at how well they turned out.

They are beautiful. I bought flowers for myself today and I wanted to have something to photograph. I found some white ranunculus which I love so I'm very happy.

These are beautiful Ellie, and it so nice to see white ones! Most of the ones we see here are either pink or red, so these are very special indeed. Glad you treated yourself to these little gems!

What a cool name for such a beautiful lily. Love your captures. Lovely with such a nice mix of muted coloration. genie
These are beautiful - sometimes it's fun to go with a different flower. I love Lillies. They are the one flower that I can always count on in my garden:-)
