Does anyone know what this is?

The old owner liberated it from a local public gardens and it's beautiful, but I'm clueless as to how to take care of it.

Look it up either on google on yahoo. Search, under images, for pink flowers or pink spiky flowers. Something might turn up.

I know some flowers from here in Ohio where I live but pink is not one of my favorite flower colors and I have never seen anything that looks like this flower.

My guess is that it is some kind of orchid. I've never seen anything like it. Good luck! Will you let us know when you find out?

It is very odd and reminds me of a wildflower I saw in BC but sorry, I have no idea what it is. Good luck with your search though!

I'm sorry to hear you also have fibro and man do I hear you on how tough it is to cook when you have it. My fibro is so much worse now that I have moved and am sure it's been getting in the way of me feeding myself and my husband.

Suzie: cooking is weird, it's not that cooking is hard, but being sure that I have enough energy to eat and then clean up, that's the issue!

Speaking of which, I need to do some dishes!
