Desert Rose in Heaven!

Let me share with you the blooming phase of our Desert Rose which started last July 31 from buds to flowers to its fading glory (at least one of them was). There are at least a dozen of buds opening up, one at a time, as I write! And more buds coming! I share this with friends from the MacroFlowerPhotography held every Saturday!

These photos are gorgeous Lui.
I remember, just last week, you were complaining about your camera but this is first class work.
I don't know this rose but it is very beautiful and the twisted buds are interesting too.
Thank you very much for your comments on both my blogs.
Have a great weekend!

I can't comment on your post remembering your mum. Great job and you are a good daughter. I remember my mum's anniversary day, which is the second day of the Chinese New Year,

Love your desert rose too. had them in Singapore.

I could not find the comment area on your lovely post about your mother, above. These posts are both very beautiful photographs, and sentiment also.

These flowers are very pretty. They reminded me of the ones I saw in VN,. they grew them in pots.

Gorgeous flowers! Lots of my Chinese neighbours have this plant , since we're staying in the high rise flat, the plants are grown in flower pot, along the corridor.
