Strange yet beautiful Flowers

While in the Botanic Gardens, before my 10 kms shrunk to 5km, I came across these colourful flowers.

To borrow from Hannah Gadsby's Graduation speech at the University of Tasmania, it's the 'diversity of diversity' that we should celebrate. 

If we actually seeking it out when planting gardens, why don't we do it with people?

Embrace all the colours of the rainbow in nature.

Human nature too.

  4. I wonder what is the name of that fabulous flower in pink and blue? Looks stunning & exotic to me. Also the amaryllis with stripes is gorgeous. Too bad that many species are disappearing from the planet right now.... Thank you for linking, sending warm weekend greetings, riitta

    1. I didn't know. That's really sad. They are probably South American.

  5. It is sad that some vaccine is going unused here and people think the virus somehow respects one political persuasion over another. Sadly many of the anti-vaccine anti-mask protesters are pleading to be vaccinated after they enter the hospital, as if it is a treatment rather than a prevention.

  6. Beautiful and colorful flowers. Nature is so cherished during these unusual times

  7. daughter is ill and we had to make the trip to watch our grandchildren....I think she will be fine.

  8. Wonderful plants! I believe that humanity only celebrates diversity until something (or someone) does not please. This is then called a weed ...
    All the best,
