Childhood memories 🙂
Nice photo. Do the flowers look slightly different in each part of the world? I also wondered if there were hybrid varieties, and if so, with what plants. Just curious.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. How does this flower look like in your place?
Nice ones! thanks for the quick like =)
I tried to get some seeds for these at one time, to grow for myself! Can’t believe the first post of yours that I click displays them 🙂
These flowers are simple yet amazingly beautiful.
Nice post! This flower was part of my childhood days… they bloom at night like Jasmine and in the morning, turn pink 🙂
This looks a little like Quisqualis indica to me. Very pretty.
I used to have an African Combretum specie… but it never flowered and it eventually ceased to be. Sniffle. Sniffle.
Thank you! It is indeed Quisqualis indica.
I love the color of these flowers. They make me smile 🙂 Judy
