Red Powder Puff

. . . yes, that's what it is called: Red Powder Puff!
Nope, we don't own it.
It belongs in Baby's garden!
But there is something extremely dangerous in this flower . . .
. . . have you seen it?
Yes, those BIG red ants (locally called 'hantik')
were crawling all over the flowers!
I did not notice it until I heard someone call my name.
But I did not see anybody!
Whoever alerted me must have been my angel.
Because if that ant should bite me
it would be extremely fatal for somebody with allergy!

What is exciting and beautiful flower. But hidden in the beauty of low hazard. Good thing you had an angel warn you. The pictures are wonderful. When I first saw the flower, I thought of a fan. I wish you a nice sunday! Zinnias

As always, a very enjoyable blog post. That's really something about your angel warning you about the ants. I love the powderpuff plant! Very pretty.

Oh my...!! Dear friend, I'm glad someone called your name (interesting, somone from the other side maybe..), so you could be able to see those figthening and dangerous ants, I have heard of them, but we do not have them in my country.. Take care!

But the flowers.. they are just stunning beautiful, I have never seen those flowers before!

Warm hug, Viola :)
