Roses and Cactus

 Roses and Cactus

White Rose

Roses has always been one of my favourite flowers. I love the sweet smell it gives of and the ruffles in it’s petals are really appealing.

Pink rose

Having a mixture of both pink and white roses in a vase would certainly brighten up the house.  It is a pity that roses are not long lasting and those that I do buy do not last more then a week at home.

A flower like cactus

I think I would be better of keeping cactus at home. At least I would not have to worry about it “dying” on me.

Another cactus I spotted at Garden at the Bay

They look evergreen and are of relatively low maintenance as compared to looking after flowering blooms.

Which would you choose to have in your home?

Duo-Colored Flowers at Garden at the Bay

A pink and purple flower

I love looking at unusual looking flowers.    Flowers that have more then one color are certainly extremely appealing to me. They different colors on a single bloom gives the flower more “depth”.

A purple bloom

Different shades of the same color also helps to “magnify” a flower. The darker purple at the tips of the petal really help to accentuate it.

White bloom with pink

This white bloom had “highlighted” pink inner petals which was really outstanding. It made one focus on the center of the flower when you look at the flower.

An Orchid

This flower unlike the previous two feature has very contrasting color petals. The dark purple petals make one focus on the center of the flower. I guess that it is also one of the ways that it attracts bees to aid in the pollination of the flower.

Yellow Purple Orchid

Another orchid with contrasting colors for it’s petal.  Don’t you find the purple portion really eye catching?

Do you like two colored flowers too?
