Camera Clicks – Seymour

I am SO Excited, Seymour has matured!

I’ve snapped a bunch of pictures at a few intervals as the Night Blooming Ceres was opening.

Camera Clicks – Flower of the Day – Plumeria

This is my first Red plumeria flower so far and as you can see from the picture there are a few more to come. It has a nice Honeysuckle smell, no wonder moths are attracted to it.

Here is what Wikipedia says about plumeria: “Plumeria flowers are most fragrant at night in order to lure sphinx moths to pollinate them. The flowers yield no nectar, however, and simply trick their pollinators. The moths inadvertently pollinate them by transferring pollen from flower to flower in their fruitless search for nectar.

Camera Clicks – Baby Seymour

My first flower this summer on this Night Blooming Ceres. Last summer I had dozens. These things are so amazing, as the name suggests they only bloom at night then die in the morning.

So I’ll be conquering, or attempting to conquer my fear of certain green critters so that I can take pictures of this beauty while it’s open, soooo stay tuned!

Camera Clicks – Cee’s FOTD Challenge

So this is a tababuea tree, I also call this a rain tree although I think there is another tree named this. I have a few others that are pink and after 5 years 2 of them finally flowered.

This yellow one was a volunteer from my neighbor. It had a sibling until just before this one sprouted buds. The caveman got to it, I kept telling him it was a “good ” tree and to leave it be lol, he mows everything down!

When it finally sprouted, you’d have thought the President was paying us a visit! I broke out my fancy camera, put my hat on backwards and started clicking!

Now if i can just get my dogs to stop peeing on my Gardenia! [SMH] Anyone have any suggestions on this?
