Monkey Fever


Dwarf Poinciana pod of flowers droops, then each flower turns into a pod. I love the way they spoke out around the old flower.




I love the frizzles that hang down.

Picmonkey FEVER made me do this
I am happy to say Picmonkey now has Collage Ability.... and I do suffer from Monkey Fever.

Beautiful images. I love the contrasts of colour.

I love the first picture best, it is stunning. Also the second, the spokes make it look like some kind of spider plant!

Good morning :-)
I love these pictures and the spokes makes a good contrast. I am having the Friday Fever today lol! Wish I didn't have to go into work though. Have a great day!

Reminds me of my Dad's sweep pea pods. He used to collect them for the next year.

I'm sorry to hear that you are suffering from Picmonkey Fever, but I am enjoying the results om both today's and yesterday's post.

I love the frazzle dazzle of this Monkey Fever too! The small unnoticed things in life like this are a treat. I have not seen this plact before either. It reminds me of a Fushia.

Thank for you comment on my blog, Sandra! I'm glad you enjoyed seeing all the "pink" of Madonna Inn in California! I had a lot of fun visiting it.

I like your monkey fever. I think the first one is so pretty - and as usual I don't think I have ever seen these either. I guess I don't get out much. sandie

I love the last one, it almost looks like an alien plant. Those Dwarf Poinciana are beautiful at any stage.
