This is a flower I´ve seen a few times, twice I think, on blogs and loved it. When I run into it in Honolulu Zoo I was happy. Sadly it was almost overbloomed and not much to photograph.
 I was trying to find seeds of it but it is a bush not suitable for my balcony or the climate where I live. Well, at least I have seen it. And got these shots. :)

  5. I think that it is still pretty. The older I get the more I admire fading flowers (I suppose there is a deep dark reason for that!)

  6. That is one nice flower. I like how the petals curl back.

  7. This is not a plant I am familiar with, what a lovely colour.

  8. I'm trying to grow tropical plants in my frozen desert, and it can be very frustrating. So your gorgeous flowers are a very welcome sight, even though you had to leave them there.
