There are many beautiful flowers growing here in and around Palmgrove. I just want to give you a glimpse of these beauties. Of course I don’t know any names, sorry. Also, maybe Lance covered some of these in his former blogs; if so, well, you can look at them again.
Here is Emase with a water lily. Funny part is, these beauties open when it gets dark and close when it gets light in the morning. That is what I can figure out anyway. When we go to the stream and it’s dark, they stand open. They look so gorgeously white in the darkness. They do have a faint fragrance which smells very fresh and sweet.
This is the flower of the banana. It is a strange growth. Can’t say I see much beauty in it, but it sure produces a delicious fruit. Anyhow, enjoy the pictures. I could go through them and say each one is beautiful, but that would get rather repetitive. (Editor’s note: As far as I can see Leanne forgot to send us a picture of the banana flower. I don’t see any of the ones below being a banana flower. We’ll have to get her to send us one.)
