I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

These are SOME flowers! Cactus blooms...I imagine! They can be quite surprising, in vivid colours and complicated structure of blooms inside.What a striking contrast you managed here!

@Japanalia: Thanks Gabriela - I think that's what they must be, judging by where they were located in the greenhouse. As to what type of cactus flower... I'm afraid I didn't pay attention again...

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

You have me searching for what these are called, now . .

@Ronnie 2¢: I think they're cactus flowers, as Gabriela pointed out Ronnie. Now, if you wouldn't mind popping over to Wisley for me to confirm the name...
