Floral Friday

The Crown of Thorns  euphorbia comes in many colours., which bloom in springtime. The yellow  one is blooming for the first time in my garden.
 This is a wild Cymbidium orchid, which I had brought from a Forest Guest House in the Western Ghats. The flowers are white with purple stripes, with a center funnel of yellow. They bloom in long strings.
The Guava tree is reluctantly putting out flowers. It seems to be conserving its energy in the drought.
You can see some lovely flowers in Nick's blog  here.


  1. Great pictures you show of some beautiful flowers.
    Wishing you a good weekend.

  2. Lovely photographs of these beautiful three flowers! I especially like the guava flower.

    Thank you for participating in Floral Friday Fotos!

  3. wow. Three gorgeous flowers. The Cymbidium orchid is the one I got lost in today. Would love to have one of my own. :)

  4. We have almost the same characteristics of Cymbidium but the color here is different than yours. They would look lovely if put side by side.

  5. I used to never pay much attention to crown of thorns until I got my first one about a year and a half ago. It has been blooming non-stop with minimal care ever since, and so has another I bought three months ago ever since I got it. Now I am very tempted to buy more...

  6. I have only seen the red crown of thorns - not this color! I like your other photos too!

  7. Gorgeous photos! Especially love the delicate Guava tree blossom. :-)
