Today's Flowers

In Guwahati, we stayed in Kanak's B&B , which was full of flowers. The Star Phlox in a bed near the gate had pretty pink flowers.
The Jamun tree was beginning to flower, with a promise of luscious purple fruit in summer. Kanak makes jams and wine with the fruit.
The delicate beauty of the guava flower ...
is set off by the rugged beauty of the Nasturtiums and Petunias .
She had anthuriums, ixora , lily and Foxtail orchids blooming too, making her yard a welcoming place of beauty.
I shall not be posting for some time now, as I shall be away for the rest of my holidays.
My thanks to Santilli, Denise, Pupo and Sandy Carlson of Today's Flowers at http://flowersfromtoday.blogspot.com
