A change in color

with 18 comments

As you heard yesterday and the day before, on the morning of September 18th I stopped where Perry Lane meets Mopac at 45th St. and took many pictures of the descendants of the rain-lily colony that I portrayed on that site in 2011. A rain-lily lasts only a few days, and as it ages its white turns more and more to magenta. Here I was intrigued not only by the changing color but also by the lines and folds in the tepals that formed a roughly flat surface on this side of the flower.
