Elle est jolie avec ses pétales froissées. On dirait qu'elle est faite en papier crépon.
Lisl: So like paper, I agree, Martine
An Albino one,
Lisl: Yes - I did wonder if it is some other plant

Screwed up paper...
Lisl: Amazingly like paper, Ray
AH....Magnifique !
Superbe sous cette généreuse lumière.
Un véritable enchantement.
Lisl: Merci beaucoup!
Looks like it to me...
It's certainly a beautiful one!
Lisl: It jumped out at me, Elizabeth!

I'm the last person who would know smile The petals look like screwed up paper that has been opened out again. It's very unusual.
Lisl: The jury is out, Alan - it is either a poppy or screwed up paper!
Trop jolie avec sa robe froissée ..bonne journée
Lisl: Merci, Claudine, et bonne journée
A perfect macro, Bravo !
Lisl: Merci beaucoup, Marie

Yes, it is - what a beautiful image!
Lisl: Thank you very much, Philine
This is magnificent Lisl, the leaves look as if they were formed from tissue paper.
Lisl: Aren't they delicious, Chad?

Elle est amusante cette fleur avec son masque
Lisl: Yes - it is a smiley flower
I found that it is called Cistus or Rock Rose. Very pretty bloom.
Lisl: Thank you for taking the trouble, Mary
Mellting has a different species of cistus today too.
Lisl: I noticed his picture - strange
Very nice whatever it is Lisl. Paper does come to mind as others have said
Lisl: It was so pretty, Bill, and now it has crumpled away
I thunk Mary is right, it has thelook of a Rose, but isn't that centre section pattern lovely.
Lisl: It certainly is very striking, Brian

This looks like the cistus (rock rose) that is also known as 'snowfire'. The petals look quite unnatural, wrinkled like that - but that is how they look on rock roses.
Lisl: Well, many thanks indeed, Louis

Whatever it is, it looks lovely Lisl.
Lisl: It certainly is a very pretty flower, Anne
this is sooooo beautiful Lisl... great image and an even better find....petersmile
Lisl: Isn't it gorgeous, thank you, Peter
It certainly looks like one!
Lisl: Apparently it is a cistus, Tom
No but it is delightful, I grow small flowered cistus but would love to have one of these specimens.
Lisl: I Googled "cistus" and this variety came up immediately - a pot for sale for £12.99
