Waiting for Naked Ladies...

Still waiting...for the dance of the Naked Ladies.
Agak-agaknya kena basah kuyup dulu baru nampak seksi dan menggoda kot.

I can now understand why it is named L. sanguinea even though the flowers are orange in colour. The stem and the buds are a ruddy blood red colour that makes you think someone sprayed/spewed blood on it.

UPDATE: The buds have bloomed, and they are a lovely orange-red colour, very distinct from the blood-red buds that there were at this stage.
