TODAY'S FLOWERS - Magic Lanterns


A bit late for Halloween but, aren't they just the most pumpkin 
orange?



Have a happy Sunday. Here it is already 33C with strong winds
and fire danger although it isn't even summer yet! .

  2. I do like the little lanterns, too! Every time I think I want to move someplace warmer--like Australia--it seems a bit too warm!

  7. Abutilins? We could certainly do with some rain here. The weather is all over the place. We will have hot and windy days and then the temperature will plummet - only to soar again. And it is not looking like a good bushfire season at all. We had enough rain over winter for the undergrowth to sprout madly. It is now tinder dry.

    1. Yep, Abutilon indeed.
      The weather has been a mess, we had massive wind gusts overnight, I thought they would rip the house from it's foundations. I heard something large and heavy go flying, don't know what yet.

  8. They look so fragile; paperlike and beautiful, Arija. It's good to see you again and I hope you're feeling better and better every day. Blessings, Jo

  10. Hi Arija, I've seen this before also in a subtropical country, i wish it grows here too. Is it abutilon? That is a beautiful color, i know there are many colors for abutilon. I hope fire will not visit you this year!

  12. Love your Magic Lanterns in springtime in Australia. Funny to see the difference all over the world, I have Chines Lanterns in autumn in The Netherlands, Europe.

  18. I love that color Arija. I hope things don't get too dry before you get rain. We escaped the hurricane in our area, and now it's trying to snow. Hope all is well. Write when you can. We're managing! I pray for you daily my good friend. Take care.{{HUGS}}
