Flower Power


Guest

Recommended Posts

So I'm going to post daily (at least will try to) a picture of a flower/flowers that I come across when I step out for any random reason. If you too have come across any and have decided to capture it on your phone/camera do post it down here.

 

PS: I am an amateur, enthusiastic alien who captures pictures on her not so fancy phone. So please don't expect pro photography here :P

 

 

Here goes my first post for today!

Budding Thought: I am not an early morning human, nor a late night human. Sometimes I wonder if I am a human at all. Oh wait, I forgot, I am an alien!

I have no clue, what type of flower this is, I came across this during my walk. Need to consult a botany expert :P

3 day weekends are good. (says the retired guy) :D

 

I did an image search on that red flower - looks like it's called "sensitive plant" or "humble plant", of the genus "Mimosa". :)

Thank you for looking it up for me. the sensitive plant or sometimes called 'touch me not' plant's flowers are different, i guess I'll click those soon if i come across them not sure if they exist in my neighborhood. 

 

As @LeChat mentioned and i cross verified these are Calliandra. 

 

But @davebthank you for your enthusiasm on my random flower clicks 😁

Nice pics! 

 

I'm not a botanist, but I, also, tried a web search, with your photo. Apparently, it has nicknames, like "fairy duster" and "powder puff plant."

 

Calliandra - Wikipedia

 

 

I bow to your superior flower power. :D

This year, the cherry blossoms bloomed earlier than usual, but they were scattered by the rain.

Wisteria flowers are also in bloom.

What is the purpose of 'ueue' in queue ?

Crossword puzzles or Scrabble or something? :P :lol:

(I tried to use "que" in Scrabble once, but apparently that isn't an actual English word - would've been okay if I had been playing in Spanish, but I don't know enough Spanish to play in that language) :lol:

Well, I don't have a phone camera at all. My mobile looks like this:

(And, nevertheless, I really don't want to have a smartphone because I feel a strong internal compulsion to stand out, so I don't want to have a phone "like everyone else". And I'm a "technological conservative" anyway.)

The Nokia which you have not only serves as a phone but as self defense tool.. throw it at someone and the person might end up at the hospital but the phone shall remain intact! 😋 not that I'm suggesting you try it.

 

 

Jokes apart

Yeah i wish i could permanently switch to a basic model, especially flip phones!

One day.... maybe 🙂
