A few nerines

The RHS at Wisley (UK) has an interesting display of Nerines at present. Each plant is in a black recess in a wall finished with a gilt frame, and lit by a single overhead spot. Until you get close it is difficult to see if it is a painting or a real plant. Very dramatic. Beats the Auricula theatre hands down. A pain to photograph because of the contrast, and flash turns the background to grey.
