Bittersweet BloomsWednesday, October 26, 2011
While it is all gloomy (cloudy and rainy... oh, what's happening!) for the past one week, my Hibiscus Red Shield flower buds begun to take turns to bloom. There were lots of buds on the branches, so the blossoming were prolific for a number of days. On those mornings, I was greeted by these sweeties but very little foliage ;-(
I noticed from pics found in some sites that Euphorbia hybrid 'Diamond Fizz' has plenty of nice white bracts. Mine however always stop right here...
Azalea is the plant I am loving most at the moment. Although the pink one has sheded some leaves, the little bush is still giving a few flowers at a time. The white one suffered less stress, it shows in blooming also - always more flowers than the pink one.
The Copper Leaf Plant takes time to mature and flower. When the plant is in bloom, that is when they shine :-D
It is amazingly to see this Sarracenia flower never fading and lasting so long. The flower showed up in May and it's still there!
My non-stop-flowering Tacca can look a litte scary and weird to some people, hehe...
The sky here has been really cloudy and often rains. Fortunately, there is no flooding in my vicinity. My heart goes out to those in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam whose houses are in water and who have lost their loved ones. I hope that the water will recede soon and there would be enough food and necessities to go around.
Have a blessed day!
