Flower Power

There were lots of beautiful flowers at the botanical gardens, of course. In fact, all of us kept getting distracted by the blooms while we were supposed to be posing for pictures. Every time I go to Botanica, I find a new interesting plant. Here are my favorites from this visit:

How can you not love a flower as big as your head? The blooms are beautiful, but the gigantic buds, enormous leaves, and shower head like seed pods look like something from Dr. Seuss!

Hardy Hibiscus
These are another gigantic flower - the blooms are as big as a dinner plate. The bees were happy to dine in them.
And the seed pods look just like Seymour, the carnivorous star of Little Shop of Horrors!
Feed me!!

Water Lilies
Oh, the water lilies...
I understand why Monet painted them so often.
They are so elegant and so serene.
