Flowers for Today

The huge trumpets of the Golden Chalice vine never get pollinated here. I tried my hand with a brush, but didn't succeed.
This is an old-fashioned flower called Madras Jasmine. I think it is some kind of Clerodendrum.
The Zimbabwe Creeper has attractive flowers. I have kept it as a bush.
Pink flowers of the Powderpuff plant attract bees.
A Gloriosa superba lily, past its glory, but still attractive.
You can view lots of flowers from different climate zones at Today's Flowers

  2. Another exotic collection! The Zimbabwe creeper has such attractive flowers!! That variety of clerodendrum (Madras jasmine)grows wild at Haflong. And I think the glory lily looks lovely at every stage!

    Have a great Sunday!

    The birdshot was mostly lucky. I saw the bird flying in and out from under the roof. Had no idéa it would come out like that. :)

  8. Such a selection of beautiful flowers, the whites are perfect, the pink ones a delight and the gloriosa lily I have admired on your header for some time and have only once before seen in the wild on Ysawa-Rara, an island in the Fijian group. Thank you for a lovely flower show.
