Today's Flowers

I am thankful that I live in an area on this planet, where there are flowers and butterflies throughout the year. The Butterfly ginger which usually rests during the winter months, is putting out fragrant, silky blossoms
Another silky flower is the pink Justicia carnea.
The highly scented, native creeper, Hoya carnosa is full of buds now. The opened flowers fill the airin the night with the scent reminiscent of Brylliantine, a men's hair cream which used to be imported from England.
The bright yellow flowers of Basant- Rainwardtia indica are appearing from surprising corners in my garden.

I am so proud of this queen of all flowers, the rose. It flowers more during winter.
My thanks to Santilli, Pupo, Denise and Sandy Carlson for their great meme Today's Flowers.

  2. I just love the simplicity of the beautiful white Butterfly Ginger flowers and the form of the pink Justicia. Luckily I can grow both here in my garden too. The Basant is a new plant for me though. It's quite lovely.
