I’ve been taking the random shot of flowers since I’ve been here and thought I would compile them all into one post……and here it be….
This is a delicate little tree flower. Kind of reminds me of the Texas Golden Chain Tree I’ve seen in California….which I always seem to want to call ‘Texas Chain Saw Tree’ …..hhmmmmm….
Here’s a close up of those chrysanthemums in that farmhouse garden from my Tour de Thai Binh.
….interesting little flower…..
….anybody know what this one is? It looks like a cross between bleeding heart and bouganveilla….
….don’t know what this one is, either.
I know I’ve posted these pics of the Gerberas already, but gosh darn it, they’re pretty!
Well, okay, not only flowers.. moss & ferns, too….
I’ve been so surprised by how many plants and trees I’ve seen here that also grow in California…..the Texas Chain Saw….er, whatever…..bouganveilla, chrysanthemums, hibiscus, trumpet vine, morning glory, gerbera and these three:
Crepe Myrtle – this may not be the exact same variety you see all over Chico, but it’s related, without a doubt. The flower is very similar and the trunk of the tree is a dead giveaway – it’s that smooth, swirly, satiny greyish-brown.
Oleander – is there anywhere this stuff doesn’t grow?
And last, but not least…
….portulaca…..growing over its boundary onto the marble sidewalk….yes, marble.
