When the morning sun started streaming into the garden, I stood there and literally watched the turnera flowers blossom before my very eyes.
Stage 2 - Petals unfurling under the warm sunshine.
Stage 3 - Almost there.
Stage 4 - Tada!
The lipstick plant also makes me beam with joy. After the last flowering season in July, I wasn't quite sure if I would ever see flowers again. Then suddenly, little tube-like calyxs started appearing.
Some have red lipsticks emerging already.
The flowering season has begun!
