Baby Slippers: Flower of the Day, June 25, 2018

Contrary to what you might think, not related to Lady Slippers.  Technically not a flower, but couldn’t resist this shot from my friend Gloria’s low entrance wall along her front sidewalk.

Kalanchoe Study #2: Budding out. Flower of the Day, Jan 3, 2018

IMG_5637This is #2 in a series of shots taken of one kalanchoe plant–all on the same day.  It seemed to have at least 4 phases of budding to full flower all occurring at the same time.  Go HERE to see the first shot of the portion of the plant in full bloom.  Hard to believe these are all stages of the exact same flower.

You might have guessed from the title that this is the first of a series taken of this remarkably varied plant.  This and all of the upcoming photos were taken at the same time of the same plant. Keep tuned to this blog for upcoming kalanchoe adventures.
