Showy Pink Flowers

I wouldn’t say I’m a fan of Alstroemeria but these pink beauties caught my eye at the Dunedin Botanic Garden on Sunday morning. I took nine photos which surprised me but a) they looked stunning and b) they were difficult to photograph. When I came to select and edit the photos tonight I found that a challenge too!

Alstroemeria are also known as ‘Peruvian lily’ or ‘Lily of the Incas’.

Alstroemeria are available in many different colours. During my visit I saw red alstroemeria that were lovely, and a nice yellow form.
