Unfurling into curling

In a beautifully laid out backyard garden on the South Island of New Zealand last November, I went exploring with my camera and found ever so many wondrous colours and forms in plants, leaves, and flowers.

This particular calla lily plant had budding flowers in varying stages of development, as well as some dried up ones among its blooms.  They were all so fascinating!
