A Flower Posing as a Pinecone?

Huntington Library Gardens, San Marino CA ...No idea what this plant is but the color of the bloom is mauve. This photo is popular for me on View Bug.

I think it actually is some manner of flower ...the color of it was mauve in the middle and then darker green leaves. I do have the color version somewhere ...

The angle you took this shot makes it really look like a flower

This pic is an oldie but goodie from the spring of 2011 ...my trusty Canon Rebel EOS T1 was 4 months old (I still use it!) and this plant's center is actually a mauve color but I just thought it comes across better in silvery tones.

Impressive - am no artist at all but also love the b&w / monochrome approach

I like the silvery tone. Almost like joulery
