With my recent out of ordinary busy working schedule, I thought I won't be able to make it. Yesterday when I came home, it surprisingly still had daylight, which was not normal recently. When I was wandering in my garden, I found after all I might have something to share.
Here is the HOT red ornamental pineapple! It has been blooming for a couple of month now, recently the red color of the bloom as well as the leaves intensified even more, which made it looking really hot. Don't you think?

Here is the PROUD, the white magnolia! Oops, this is actually not in my garden. It belongs to my working place. I have been watching these flower trees for a while since they set the first bud. Since I recently spent so much time at work, does it make me deserve to use it for this post?!

Even this flower only lasts two to three days after starting unfurling, the scent is just heavenly! When it fully opens, it is about 7 to 8 inches across. I found even its stamens are so fascinating with that unique shape and the color!
YAY, I made it!
