Today’s Flowers/Spicy Jatropha

Some of the pink buds seen through the wings of a dragonfly

Sometimes you cannot see the blooms for the bugs!:) I must have posted pictures of these blooms several times but never with such pretties sitting on them. These are the blooms of the Spicy Jatropha aka Jatropha integerrima. The shrub grows to the size of a small tree and is popular in most gardens in our country. Mine is growing in a large container and I trim it from time to time.
