Hello Mary Sue,

Thank you very much for your reply. I immediately went out to take some 
pictures of my Ornithogalum arabicum, I think they are reasonably good, 
the flowers were waving in the wind. They are very popular with insects 
and often the inside of the flowers is crowded with them. I do not know 
which insects they are.
But in general I must say that this is not an overly attractive plant. 
There is a lot of foliage and few flowers and the fact that the foliage 
goes yellow while the plants are flowering is not that attractive. I 
planted them in a premium position and will remove them from there. The 
flowers themselves are long lasting and beautiful, though.
I recently learned how to add pictures to the Wiki (with a lot of kind 
help from David, thank you) so this is an occasion to practice the new 
skills.... I added a few pictures.

Bye for now
