Baby Betsy Daylily

Baby Betsy today, look at that loooooooong Pistil.  Do you remember what I told you the Pistil is?

WELL, it is:

The central female reproductive organ around which the other flower parts are arranged. At the base is the ovary, where the seeds develop. A long style extends from this. The tip is swollen and flared to form the stigma. The stigma receives the pollen.

                                 I hope this description does not get me X-rated!!
