stay stamen

or desist hybridizer…  this is a very short story comparing two different flowers, a hibiscus and a daylily.  the hibiscus has five petals and five pistils.  one for each  petal and each chamber in the ovary.  the daylily has six petals and six stamen.  somewhat similar yet different.   the hibiscus has many many stamen.  Oh and there would be six stamen in the picture of the daylily – except some hybridizer who will attempt to remain nameless could not resist swiping one stamen and spreading pollen to another flower.  if Gandalf were here there might be references to a fool of a Took…   four images…   desist hybridizer !
