Today's Flowers opens up on Friday at 12.00 a.m., and closes the following Thursday at 11.00 p.m. More information about this meme can be found here.
I am still sharing what I found while on vacation in December 2015 and January 2016.
I can't identify most of the plants and flowers here. I do know that below is the flower of a banana plant. I have seen them for sale in our local Asian food market but have not searched on how one would prepare it for eating.
I recognize the Heliconia in the top middle photo below.
Today's Flowers was created by Luiz Santilli, Jr. Thank you Luiz! I am now its host.
