Flower within a flower



Look at that. Isn't that lovely. A tiny flower within a small flower. This is the original color of this type of flowers. Occasionally I do see an all white or all pink flower among them. Too bad, so sad that the flowers only open when the sun starts to shine and close once it gets dark. The petal is extremely soft and when watering the plant make sure water does not touches the petals when the flower is at full bloom or else it would look like some wet tissues.

It didn't bloom that nicely lately due to the whether. Now a days it is either cloudy or rainy. It needs hot sun. Hope it will bloom well again during the hot and dry season in January and February, just in time for Chinese New Year, I hope. It was given to me by my neighbor. We exchange plants once in a while.

Thanks for reading. Just want to share photos of some of my lovely plants with you so that you could admire it like I do.
