Blooming Friday - Contrasts

This Billbergia Luna Blanca, which is now flowering in my garden, looked like claws a few days ago...
Now it looks like this! What a contrast. I learnt its name from Grower Jim's wonderful blog Garden Adventures.

The Begonia 'Black Mamba' has pretty pink flowers which are a contrast to its dangerous sounding name. The dark leaves of this begonia are a contrast to its blooms.
My thanks to Katarina of Roses and Stuff for hosting this creative meme.
