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.

Here is a little fish Emase caught as he showed us the lily.

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.)

(“The Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed.  And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food”  Gen. 2: 8-9)

Heh, I recognize a few of them… top left looks like a hibiscus, 7th row left is a Gladiola (native to Africa), eight row left is vinca, and right is torenia, and the last picture of the orange an yellow is lantana.

So, how do I get seeds?

I remember taking that one with your hand by that pineapple plant, Leanne!

We also took pictures by a tree with flowers on it…right by the school…although I couldn’t tell what it was for the life of me!

You’re quite right, they are all very beautiful, but I figure I’ve got almost the same colors in MY garden! (almost 😛 )
