Daily Flower 4: Flowers from Chinese new Year

Narcissus (水仙)

My mother always had Narcissus at home for the Chinese New Year.  She put the bulbs in a plate with water and left them for flowering.  I bought some this year also and did the same.  They bloom very well and are very fragrant.  

Lily

We also have cut flowers such as lily to put in a vase.  They are usually white and this year I got the red ones.  They became full-bloom yesterday.

Great zoom in: I remember the text books of my youth couldn't capture the parts of the flower as vividly as you can show on your blog. Great photography.
