The Flowers I SeeSaturday, September 18, 2010
These small Euphorbia Milii blooms are modified leaves called bracts. The true flowers at the centre are tiny and inconspicuous.
Thunbergia Laurifolia is not only a fast growing vine but also quick in producing its striking blue flowers. Nonetheless, it's a plant that has been declared a weed in Queensland, Australia.
Dianthus Chinensis is often acknowledged for its edible fowers benefits. The flowers have sweet nectar and clove scent.
Cuphea Hyssopifolia, the whole plant adds a soft texture to a garden. Its foliage role is as important as its tiny flowers.
Coleus flowers do not stay long as they would be pinched off in order to keep the plant growing and grow bushier.
The Hydrangea flower clusters, which are also bracts, grow bigger and colour deepens by the days; from light pink to purple.
This little plant, Acerola, hopefully a bonsai-to-be, burst delicate pink flowers even when the cutting has just flourished leaves.
Regardless, just enjoy the blooms in your garden ok :-D
