Flowers to sooth the soul…

This very attractive flower is called Edgeworthia Chrysantha…
Was collecting wood for our stove when it caught my eye…
In Japanese, it is simply called ‘Mitsu mata’ for the simple fact that the branches almost always split out into threes…
Native to south China…
The Japanese apparently use their bark to make paper…
Our mimosa plants are flowering…
The ball-like flowers are very tricky to photograph…
The bees love them so there must be some nectar in those little balls…
Wifey likes this hyacinth plant…
Native to the Mediteranean area…
The blue is so, blue…
We have some ‘native’ oxalis plants growing in potager…
But my missus bought this specimen from the store…
Quite pretty, and the blooms curl up after they are done flowering… 
And this specie does not spread wildly like the other species…
The muscari in our potager is rather stunted, but very cute all the same, especially the bottomest blooms…
The combination of sparkling blue with a dash of white… wooh, lovely…
Also called grape hycinth…
Native to Eurasia…
Attended a ‘thank you’ party organized by a graduating class of nurses…
And received a bouquet of flowers…
Thought I’d record this pretty garbera flower before it wilts away…
And why not this white one as well, I thought…
Aren’t you amazed at how perfectly shaped these flowers are?

    Lrong I love your capture of the gebera daisy! The richness of the color is just gorgeous. All are beautiful but that one just makes me smile.

    Even your mimosas are different from ours here in Malaysia which are weeds. Your flowers today are all lovely. We can grow them here. Also, looking forward to see your plum blossoms turn into fruits.
