Thanks for the excellent help in trying to point us in a direction. I will show him these options and try to get him to confirm which one. He did look at the blooms up close and knowing that I am a plant nut, shared that photo when asking if I knew what it was.
thanks for the attempt to right my photo. I tried also and finally gave up and posted it as is.
It may take me a few days to show this thread to my friend but I will let everyone know what he thinks.
Everyones' effort is appreciated.
