Today’s Flowers/ Summer Bloomers

Welcome to Today’s Flowers! This week I’m posting the pictures of two kinds of blooms from my yard.

The Rose Cactus, a variety of Pereskia is from the cactus family. It looks more like a shrub, but with all the spines that one would associate with a cactus.

Champa/Magnolia champaca bloomed for the second time in two years. Last year my small plant didn’t put up any show but I was very happy with the sight of the blooms in April. Not too many but it’s a good sign!

    The Rose Cactus is not what I would expect at all of a cactus. It is a lovely plant.

    The champa flower is gorgeous! I hope it will bloom more often for you. Have a great day Kanak!

    Fabulous shots, I can’t choose a favorite because I love the color of your cactus flower, but also the design and purity of your white Champa. Either one is a delight to the eye. Thanks for sharing them.
