Birds of Paradise in Ajijic.
One of the first exotic flowers I ever saw and still one of my favorites. This photo was taken today on the grounds of the Lake Chapala Society. Click photo to enlarge jdbphoto
To see one of the most beautiful flowers Cee has ever posted, go HERE.
The white bird of paradise plant is often mistaken for a banana tree. It is immense and the flowers so high up that they may be overlooked.
This closeup was actually taken months ago in Mexico, but couldn’t resist using it as it goes so well with Cee’s flower of the day.
You can’t beat this combination of orange and purple.
You must see Cee’s flower HERE.
I saw this bird in the light from the wall lamp outside the guest room as I opened the front gate at 9:30 PM to let guests out after a film night at my house tonight. I remarked on the interesting lighting and my friend Glenda remarked it was more interesting because of the street light shining on it as well. I wedged the gate open with an old axe head of my grandfather’s, went in to get my camera, got distracted and promptly forgot about it. It was after 1 a.m. when I decided to post a photo of a flower for my 3400th posting, remembered seeing a flower I wanted to photograph, remembered I was with Glenda when I saw it and started combing my memory. I then remembered it was a bird of paradise and went out to find the gate still wedged wide open. Not a good idea in Mexico–especially with an axe head invitingly wedging it open!!! Sheesh.
Here it is, above and below, not as interesting as earlier, but. . . .If my math is right, it is my 114th daily posting for Cee’s flower prompt, which I started posting on June 30, 2015.
