Blooming Friday- Hearts for Valentine's Day

My garden is presenting me with many hearts for Valentine's Day. Bothe the flower and the leaf of the Anthurium are heart shaped.
A group of peaceful hearts of the Peace Lily Spathiphyllum.

More leafy hearts.

The three dimentional pink hearts of the Begonia.
And , for you,the golden hearts of the Thunbergia Mysorensis.

Have a happy Valentine's Day!
For my Indian friends, Happy Shivaratri!
For my Chinese friends, Happy Chinese New Year!


  1. Your wonderful flowers send warm wind to the cold world.
    Thank you.

  2. Beautiful selection ... great way to say Happy Valentine's Day!

  3. Wonderful photos! I love the heart shaped foliage!!

  4. Great, your plants are growing so profusely and healthy. I love those Spathiphyllums, especially the ones with very big white spade. Thanks for your BF post, i was reminded of plants i love but forget.

  5. Hi!
    The flowers you are showing are only indoors potflowers in my cold country.
    It is fantastic to see them from your photos growing in free life.
    Have a nice weekend!
    Happy Valentine!/

  6. Lovely hearts reflecting how I sense you ... a 'Be Mine' Sweetheart in virtual time. The warmth existing in your environment and spirit brings warmth into my chilled world. Happy Valentines Day Lotus Leaf! ;>)

  7. The Thunbergia is so unusal. I have not seen one like that. Most of the ones here are blue.

  8. So beautifully shown! I love the photo of the anthurium--the bloom or bract beside the leaf. Your garden looks so welcoming and lush!

    Happy Shivaratri to you too!
