Detail of Heliconia jdb photo 2018
Heliconia, ginger, baby’s breath and Lily in a coconut.
Luckily, the weekly flower vendor sets up shop in the street directly across from the street entrance to my beach rental. Friday, I took the coconut I’d bought from a beach vendor, minus its coconut water, to the flower vendor and chose flowers and greenery and arranged it on the spot. Today my neighbor contributed the lily to polish it off. After spending two days out on the porch to soak up the sea air, it is coming inside so I can soak up the sight of it.
Bought these in the street in front of my house for $5 yesterday..Such a luxury. Left my camera in the car, so this photo is from my phone. A bit grainy.
For Cee’s Flower of the Day prompt. (click on her link to see an outrageous peony bud..one of her many bests!
This heliconia, a bit past its prime, is bursting with seeds, ready to reproduce itself.
Cropped or uncropped? Which do you prefer?
