Today's Flowers #59

Hubby and I visited a garden store last weekend to buy a gift certificate for a co-worker/friend who is retiring. While there, I looked around and found these ...my new treasures ...
Shrimp plant.




Bougainvillea trelis ...





Thanks to the TF team for hosting today's flowers.

Ano ang tawag sa bulaklak on your first photo? Marami akong nakikitang ganyan sa lugar namin noon,at talagang super nagagandahan ako kaso di ko alam ang pangalan.

Hi Nance, my Dad has the same flower like that on the first photo and we don't have any idea how it's called. Now I know it is the shrimp flower. Thanks for sharing.
