Parrots Beak (Lotus Berthlotii)

Parrots Beak (Lotus Berthlotii) Native to: Canary Islands, Cape Verde Islands, Tenerife.. and happens to really enjoy our front yard. It’s grown quite a lot since I took these images, I’ll have to take some updates. We’ve had it five months now and seems to really like this spot it’s in. We’ll bring it inside for the winter months. 

I love this plant.

I call this “our flaming bush”. It has a wonderful soft texture to it.

Blue Dawn Flower (Ipomeoa Indica)

Here is our much loved Dawn Flower (Ipomeoa Indica — also known as blue morning glory, oceanblue morning glory, koali awa, and blue dawn flower) in a brilliant display this year. It claims to enjoy full sun.. but ours has mostly shade and is quite happy, much to our enjoyment.

Up close. Didn’t realize the one flower was ripped.. must have been one of the crows or squirrels that like to eat them as snacks. The humming birds drink them from the back of each flower, most unusual to watch. 

In sun

Harder to see, but the best display day.. in early morning shade.
