|#6 Lady who gets up late. Please translate into Americanese?|
Please help me identify these flowers and plants in my garden. I wish I would have taken my mother's tutoring in gardening seriously, for she knew all the flowers' names. Alas.
These posted actually represent only a few we have growing in our yard.
Could I grow much in Arizona? No. Only plants that loved heat, and could take care of themselves. But here in Thailand, flowers are plentiful.
#1 small coral flowers
#2 elephant ear size leaves, 2 1/2 feet tall. It must have a better name than Elephant Ears.
This lovely waterlily grows on my front porch, a gift from members of our branch who worked on our lawn while we went to the USA.
#3 This pretty orange blossom is another the members planted in our absence. So lovely. They are coming to the end of their season.
|#4 Looks familiar. I should know him. Didn't|
he once grow in my house in Mesa?
|#5 a bugle|
|#6 Orchid, Thailand is famous for them.|
|These papaya grow in the front year. I've got to find a ladder to pick them. There were two|
papaya trees, but one fell in a storm last week.
|These orchids grow in hanging pots-- the members brought.|
|#7 are not snapdragons. The Thais call the blue haway. (Blue Hawaii?--but they|
don't have five petals.)
