異形かと思えば… (Not An Abnormal Shape)


 先日「まだ咲くわが家のハマユウ」として紹介した花の中に、その後、異形と思われる一輪を見つけた[上掲の写真(2011年11月8日撮影)の左下]。しかし、翌朝見ると、上部に群がっている他の花々と同じ形になってしまっていた。多分、開き始めの形にとどまっている時間が夏期には短いせいで、このような形を経てから、よく見る形になることに今まで気づかなかったのだろう。

Among the flowers I mentioned in the earlier blog post "Still Blooming Crinum asiaticum in Our Yard," I found one in a shape different from normal ones (see the flower at lower left in the above photo, which was taken on November 8, 2011). The next morning, however, I saw it changed into the same shape as the other flowers that were blooming above it. It seems that I saw for the first time the appearance of the flower in the period of just beginning to open. The reason for the fact that this period had escaped my observation until this time is probably that its length is too short to be noticed in summer.
