Devil in the Garden

No, the title does not make it seem that I have gone over the edge. Of course, there cannot be devils in any garden however what I am referring to is a new species of orchid that is referred to as the demon orchid.

Now orchids are lovely flowers so when I heard of a species that looked like the devil I just had to write about it. The new species is known as Telipogon diabolicus and supposedly the orchid’s reproductive structure or gynostemium looks like the head of a devil. The flower itself has clawed petals which add to its demonic appearance.

This makes me think of the Disney cartoon “101 Dalmations” in which the villainess  Cruella DeVille always reminded me of the devil.
