    If I had to guess, I would say they are called Dracula because they can be grotesque and beautiful all at once! Bellissimo! (Bellissima?!)

    Love these. Keep thinking I should try a couple. Thomas you are a fantastic grower and photographer. You really should put your name on your photos. Would hate to see others take credit for them.
