Ornithogalum Arabicum

20131003-083122.jpg Ornithogalum arabicum, say that three times fast. Is a species of star of Bethlehem native to a variety of areas of Europe. Thank you Wikipedia! I just think these flowers are so beautiful and other-worldly. They work wonderfully in single stem vases, each stem doing a singular dance of its own. They last forever, with buds opening up all along the way. I find them at Buckets on First Avenue. Michael always has a healthy bucket of them at the ready.
