is our prompt word this week at Our Beautiful World I wonder what my good friend Shahrul is up to? She always does the most inspiring posts...
Well her prompt made me think about these trees that grow in my mom's gardens.
They have a canopy that kind of hugs her driveway and give the most awesome shade
they are also her natural orchid greenhouse and to top it all they are a hummingbird magnet.
I don't know the name of the tree but I love the flower buds so much...
I took this photo using a macro lens, they are so intriguing I wonder how they fit inside the bud and how they unruffle to produce a perfect fan when opened.
can you spot the bird in the middle, she is also attratcted to these sweet blooms
you can see them open in the early morning and the late afternoon
Yes I had to own one of those trees, they remind me of my childhood, my mom and they provide food to many happy visitors in my garden every day!
Thanks for stopping by I can't wait to see what the word means to you in your part of the world, don't be shy and share !!!
