    That pale first image--a peony, a tulip?--is especially terrific.

    Joe, I didn't realize today was your first G1 day!:drinks: The Clematis are so lovely, they are one of my absolute favorites.

    Are you talking about RonS's first photo - it is a real beauty. It does seem a bit like a peony, I even considered a Magnolia blossom, but I think it could be a tulip coming towards the end of its days...:popcorm2:

    Great job with your new G1, Joe!

    Thanks much. I wish I knew ... I'm not much of a botanist. Don't think it was tulip though.

    Ron, how can you do that to us???? I'm going to get my botanist pal to take a look at this and get back to you, unless someone else beats me to it.:wink:

    I'm a lawyer. I don't actually know anything. I have to get a flower book.



    Let us know what your friend says it is.
