To a Valley in the Spring Time

Last year I stumbled upon an amazing little flower that has quickly become a favourite. In the GTA you can find it in late summer/early fall (or at least I did) but to be honest, I'm not sure what's seasonal. It is grown commercially in in South Africa but a florist would have to help me out with what happens here.

The thing that was most interesting to me to find out? It's common name is Blushing Bride :)
