Beautiful Stranger - Rachel

I love plants and flowers, but I almost never know their names. They are like the people I see all the time in my neighborhood, or in the store, or at the park who I have but a nodding aquaintance with: I greet and acknowledge, but that's as far as the relationship goes.

This beautiful stranger was growing near a neighbor's porch and I asked if I could double back with my camera and photograph it. Like me, my neighbor doesn't know this plant by name but we both admire it's unique form and beauty.
