Question of the Day…

Does anyone know what kind of flower this is?

Look closely. The first person who guesses correctly will win a prize. I’m not sure what yet–but of course it will be wonderful. Spectacular even.

Here’s a hint: It’s not something I ever hoped to see…ever.

Guess away–and I’ll announce the winner and the prize on Monday August 3 at 10:00 am.

Good luck my dah-lings!

  1. Is it edelweiss? I know in the Sound of Music is refers to it as blossoms of snow – but I wondered if there was a pink variety. I always assumed it was a European thing – someplace I only dream about.

  2. Uh… sorry guys… wish I could help, but I think I missed that herbology class! :S

  3. Here’s my guess:
    (AKA: Erysimum pallasii (Pursh) Fernald (?))


  4. I am going to make a few quesses. The Longleaf Phlox or the Honesty flower (also known as Lunaria). My dad couldn’t tell me what it was so, I did my homework.

  5. I t looks like the same flower from your button to me. Is it? I agree with Jan above that it really looks like wild radish blossoms.

  6. ok I thought it was something you did NOT want to see ever so . . . maybe poisonous or something. I am glad it is family friendly:)

  7. Since I can’t see the leaves, I have three guesses:

    1. Dame’s-rocket
    2. Honesty
    3. Cuckoo-flower

  8. I’m not surprised that even Andy–the best gardener in the whole universe–didn’t recognize this bud. It’s likely he’s never had to see it.

  9. What a bunch of cool flower names. Sometimes they don’t even sound real, do they? Dame’s-rocket? What the heck?
