    i can imagine you fell in love when you saw it for the first time, it is truely a lovely flower, soooo velvety with all those fine tiny white/silver hairs on it.

    as you said, frame it and its still lovely.
    They are protected in the wild and I didn't even touch the one that I saw for a very first time. And btw I wouldn't touch it anyway because it was so pretty there... I couldn't take it's life away. The one that I bought after that I couldn't do anything to keep it going... (I still don't know if I killed it or it wasn't feeling like living in a pot...but I like the second theory better...) So I only kept the flower.

    hi margarita,
    sorry, i didnt mean "you" took it from the wild, i meant it more in general. that came out wrong on my side, sorry again.

    cheers

    What an odd, but interesting, looking flower! Are they fragrant?.
