I think most of my photos have been of the total garden or yard and not each blossom. So here are some close-ups of a sort, zoomed in on with my Canon Rebel and 75-300 zoom lens. Enjoy!
|Flame Vine or Triquitraque|
|My large Heliconia
There are so many varieties that
I hesitate to identify the species
|This large Heliconia has seeds in it that birds eat or they grow to new plants|
|There are 6 varieties of this small
yellow Heliconia growing in wild
and cultivated. I have two . . .
|This is my other small yellow Heliconia|
|Then this small red Heliconia that is finally blooming again. None open yet.|
|The almost constantly blooming Red Ginger
here with a fully open bloom and . . .
|A Red Ginger bud just opening and growing sideways
I cut all of mine back and so they are just now starting to fill with blooms again.
|One of the many colors of Lantanas I have as a border.
They are coming back strong after I cut them to the ground 2 months ago.
|Porter Weed for Hummingbirds
I have pink and purple.
The flower that smells the sweetest is shy and lowly. ~William Wordsworth
