Appreciating The Beauties of Nature #1

One morning after a night's of heavy downpour, we went for our walk at the recreational park. Found some wild mushrooms and spider lilies at the park. The other flowers are from my garden.

  3. Oh yes, I do remember how mushrooms will pop up everywhere when it rains. I used to be so fascinated by them. Your flowers are doing very well, Nancy!

    1. Phong Hong, I am still fascinated by them. These flowers are doing well in the rainy season but some have died because of too much rain.

    1. To be safe, have to wear proper walking shoes. Our walking path is of tar road, so it is safe to walk even when it is wet.

    1. An elderly uncle told me they are edible but no one dare pick them.

  21. Could you tell us the names of the flowers? I think the bright one with folds is a coxcomb but the white one is nothing that I recognize. Lovely!

    1. Hi Kay, the white flower is the Hymenocallis White Spider Lily. Have a great day!

    2. Bless you, I see the names of both flowers there now. Were they there this morning and I didn't see them? Guess I needed a cup of coffee! :-) They are both lovely but that white flower, it made me say "OH WOW".

      Delete
    3. Kay, so sorry, its nothing to do with your cup of coffee. Initially, the names of the flowers were not there, you saw correctly. After your 1st comment, I saw a need to add in the caption and name all the flowers. Have a beautiful day!
