My String of Hearts


Ceropegia woodii (String of Hearts Vine)






Umlaud




Palm Trunk




Orange Dew





Nepenthes thorelli




The Invasion





Kaempferia bloom




Touchstone




Sublime




Braille




Some of you were surprised that the Venus Flytrap flowered. It does. But I was surprised at how the small, year old plant, flowered. Compare the size of traps on the tiny plant in bloom and the more mature plant to the right. See, this blog is educational.









Downtown




Teal





City Hall ( a little less gritty)




A fox, a raccoon?

  4. The string of hearts look so beautiful and delicate. Loved the palm trunk and as usual--your captions! Orange dew, invasion--wow! The blooms are truly beautiful. Checked out the bauhinia too. Loved them all. I saw them for the first time last year in south India. They're not common in my region.

  10. I've always loved the string of hearts. They used to carry them in the nurseries here, but I haven't seen them for a long time. Not sure I'd be very successful trying to keep one alive! Great photos!

  14. All your flower photos are rally beautiful. The Invasion photo is fantastic. I am only sorry that it cannot be seen in a bigger size. The view and the shades of blue colour are just fantastic. The portrait of an old man is also very attractive. I enjoyed this post as usual.

  19. I have the Kaempferia blooming all over my garden, an interesting plant that grows this time of the year. It can be a bit annoying growing in the wrong places but the flowers are colorful

  24. Hi Prospero,

    Haha, I think I know what "Jiaogulan" is. Normally we take it in the hot summer and we call it as "Xiancao". Please let me know how you like it. :)
