Love this more fragile red variety of heliconia in my friend’s garden in La Manz.  Home now where the jacarandas are in full bloom and I’m sneezing and hearing, sort of, through blocked ears.  They are beautiful, though.  Other than that, nice to be home.


Banana Blossom Closeup: Flower of the Day, Apr 4, 2017


This flower that this is a small detail of was at least 2 feet long and hanging down from a great height on an even longer stalk. Just gorgeous. I’ll show the entire bloom tomorrow.

Periwinkle! Flower of the Day


Thanks, Iwbut, Cee and Michele for identifying this little flower.  I’ve always loved the name periwinkle but never really knew what they looked like.
