Mary Sue,
Perhaps you or someone more familiar with this could hepl me out.  I posted
a test image of Hymenocallis tubiflora…
But was uncertain how to give description.  I am sure it is easy, once you
know how to do it....

> If you want members of this group to have the opportunity to look at your
