The pink ixora isn’t in full bloom yet but it’s attracting a whole lot of pretty visitors!
I picked up the fallen blooms of the Coral jasmine from my sister’s garden. Throughout summer, its fragrance fills the garden in the evenings. This is the time for the blooms to slow down. The flowers are edible and is a good addition to fish curries. They are also dried and stored away for later use. The taste is mild with a hint of bitterness. But only slightly so. Below is the fish curry I made with the blooms.
My collection of ferns and other foliage plants are still looking refreshingly green thanks to the rain we’ve had this year. I usually don’t include foliage in my Today’s Flowers post but I think I can make an exception today.:)
