weekly photo challenge: fresh

Kissed by the sun, these flowers open up revealing its bright colored petals. They are called Vietnam Rose and comes in a variety of colors like pink, violet, yellow, orange and red. They are also called the 10 o’clock flowers since they are in full bloom at exactly 10 o’clock in the morning.

Propagating this plant is quite easy. It grows easily from cuttings. Mine are just days old but they are blooming instantly. It doesn’t need much water, it blooms all year round and grows best with lots of sunshine.

fun foto challenge: ups and downs of outdoors

This week’s theme on the Fun Foto Challenge is all about Ups and Downs of Outdoors.

Vibrant color of red contributes to the festive mood during the holiday season. Lovely poinsettias line up the stairway which makes the outdoor activity center bursting with excitement and happiness. At first glance, they all look unreal because the color is so vivid but they are in fact real plants.

Everyone is welcome to join the challenge. Here is Cee’s blog to know more about the theme as well as to view other entries. There’s a different theme every week.  Hope you’ll all join the fun and post your entries too.

Happy Friday!
