Flower of the Day: Another Audacious Heliconia


There are so many varieties of Heliconia and some of them are often confused with Birds of Paradise, but each of the flowers in this photo, other than the red ginger, is a heliconia. From my friend’s garden in La Manzanilla, Mexico.

For Cee’s daily flower prompt.

Heliconia, Flower of the Day, Apr 6, 2017

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.
