Sunday Stills,Flowers and Plants





http://sundaystills.wordpress.com/
These bushy plants attracted my attention. It has yellow flowers like an Okra or when I was growng up in Borneo, ladies finger. However, the fruits looks like Roselle. But it is not a pretty red fruit. I don't know if they are edible like the okra and the roselle.
It appears to be a wild plant, but is is grown at the entrance of the Western Springs Garden which houses the Auckland Horticulture Society. So it may well be planted.
I was there only last Wednesday, which means it flowers in late Summer and early Autumn. When I find out more, I will let you know.

That flower looks just like the flower that grows on the Hau tree here in Hawaii. The Hau is native to Hawaii (I'm pretty sure) and doesn't have any fruit. Interesting. Great pictures.


Mine's up over at my photo blog.

Yea!! I'm glad to see you on Sunday Stills too!! Isn't this fun? I need some direction on what to take pictures of.

That is so funny about the chicken dropping flower, yeah they stink here too :)

The beach the GRAND~girls are on is just 2 hours south of where I live, it's St Augustine, Florida. To me it's the most wonderful beach in the world. I grew up just east of ther 26 miles in a small town called Palatka. My parents still live there.

I can't wait until next weeks challenge: Black and White with a twist!? We'll see!
