Today’s Flowers/Gold & Pink

                                                                      

Blooming now are the tiny flowers of the Gold vein eranthemum. The botanical name of this plant is Pseuderanthemum reticulatam. The flowers aren’t as eye-catching as the foliage. It’s a shrub that needs to be trimmed every year and I’m sure it looks its best at this time of the year. See the patterns on the bright yellow leaves. No wonder it’s also known as the Golden Net bush.

The tender leaves literally drip gold!

Pink blooms have lit up my life this year!:)

Lemonia/Ravenia spectabilis growing next to rain lilies. I got the plant from a nursery nearby. Looking up online I learnt that lemonia is a shrub that grows to more than three ft. tall. And that these dark pink flowers attract butterflies. What more do I need to kn♥w?

As light as a feather skipper! The last of the rain lilies to bloom. The white ones started blooming in June. These pink ones followed and  a few are still putting up a show.

    Your pictures are always so creative! Fancy catching a drop of gold! The gold eranthemum is known as Gokarna Jasmine here. The Limonia is a very pretty flower, but it doesn’t flower profusely here. Hope yours does well.

    Hello Kanak! I agree with you that Gold vein eranthemum has great foliage and especially for this gold one. The flowers aren’t that noticeable in real. Great pinks you have there. Very vivid ones. They are so pretty. I love them all. You have a great week!

  12. These are beautiful photos, and the flower with a skipper is fantastic..

  13. The pink flower is gorgeous, especially with that butterfly on it..
