New Girl

I don’t think I’ve ever photographed this newest hibiscus in my family.  It’s planted in a spot I don’t often visit, by the gate between the outside kitchen entrance and the back yard.  When Pasiano left the gate open, letting the dogs into the kitty domain, I went to close it and discovered this somewhat splendiferous overblown beauty. It’s not what I would normally buy.  Now I’m curious about my state of mind when I succumbed to its gaudy flashiness.

The cannas just keep blooming and the bees just keep coming. Thankful for that.

Thunbergia: Flower of the Day, Sept 19, 2017.

I was late to the awards luncheon because I had to stop and take these photos of the wild tangle of tiny orange thunbergia winding around the bird of paradise plant. Please, Pasiano, don’t trim them away.  I love the jungle look. These ladies help to create it.

Cosmos: Flower of the Day, Sept 16, 2017

In September and October, the fields on the way to the mountain town of Tapalpa, a few hours from my home,  fill with millions of flowers, including acres and acres of cosmos.  These photos were taken ten years ago and Oscar, the little boy in this photo, is now 12 years old. Perhaps it is time to take his little sister up into the fields this year!

 

Cee’s posting of her cosmos flowers today prompted me to echo her post.
