Yes, indeedy, we’re going with another mystery flower this soon. It’s because the bloody birds aren’t cooperating, the arthropods aren’t out in force yet, and I’m too busy with a dozen other projects to go back through old photos at the moment. You’ll love these beauties, though, I promise.
I have no idea if they’re natives or if they’re something S rescued from a garden and brought home, but they are definitely making the area around our concrete retaining wall more interesting.
It’s not often I run across flowers with nearly-clear petals. These barely even seem to be living things: they rather look like unfinished plastic flowers, waiting to be painted brilliant colors.

That sword fern seems to like them very much. It adds a sweet bit of extra green. As far as I can tell, this plant hasn’t got much in the way of leaves yet, but I do love its vivid green stems.
So, my darlings, who among you knows what we’ve got here?
