Today's Flowers # 128

Gazanias are always a cheery sight, and they don't mind the blazing sun.
Last of the chrysanthemums. These flowers are tiny and daisy shaped, and flower profusely throughout winter here.

My Vanilla vine is putting out its greenish flowers every day since a month, but all my efforts at hand pollinating them have failed :( Our butterflies are not attracted to these flowers.

This plant in a neglected corner in my garden is putting out its white feather- like flowers now. Its terminal leaves are also white. I don't know its name, but it is available in nurseries.

The red blossoms on the Clerodendrum vine have started appearing.Danger! This vine is very invasive!
My thanks to Santilli, Denise, Pupo and Sandy Carlson for hosting Today's Flowers. You can view gorgeous flowers from all over the world at
