Glad I spotted the flower of my Kaempferia pulchra plant. Good thing it was facing the doorway, else I would have missed it. Saw it as I was walking out to the garden one morning. This one is unusually 'shy'... hiding inbetween the leaves ;-)
I spent a few days shopping for (and buying!) plants last week, which was very therapeutic :-) Seeing the many gorgeous plants, I was so tempted to bring home all of them!! Alas, I stuck to my old favourites.
I spotted a group of Gloxinias on a rack at one nursery and quickly picked up two -- one red and one blue with white edges up. And on a nearby rack I found some African Violets that were just too hard to resist. They look absolutely lovely when put together :-)
Meanwhile, my old red with white edges Gloxinia was (and is!) blooming happily in the garden. The blooms stayed for a longer period of time due to the wet weather and cooler temperature. Good thing the mealybugs that have infested the shrub didn't kill it, haha...
