Watching The Tobouchina Flowers Turn To Seeds.

I had earlier done a post about this Tobouchina plant and shared photos of its beautiful purple flowers. For the article and photos, you can click here. Today, I will be sharing photos on the different stages of the flowers changing to seeds.
 Lovely Purple Tobouchina flowers in my garden.
 Some of the flowers have withered.
The dried flower petals have dropped off....
 leaving behind the base of the flower (receptacle and the ovary).
 Waiting to see what will become of these.
This appears after a few days. This must be the seed.
More seeds appearing.
The black seeds have broke through the flower base.
On a closer look, this is how the seeds look like. It is segmented.
 As it matured, the segments are separated and dropped to the ground.

My Pink Rain Lilies or Pink Fairy Lilies.
 After raining for a few days, my pink lilies are blooming. 
Even those sandwiched between flower pots and bricks are also blooming.
Even the White Lilies are competing with the Pink lilies to show off their beauty.

Linking to Floral Bliss.

Don't be concerned about the outward beauty that depends

on jewelry, or beautiful clothes, or hair arrangement.

Be beautiful inside, in your hearts, with the lasting charm

of a gentle and quiet spirit that is so precious to God.

That kind of deep beauty was seen in the saintly women of old,

who trusted God and fitted in with their husbands' plans.

(1 Peter 3:3-5, The Living Bible-TLB)
