Hi all,

Does this remind you of mouth watering common candies? Believe me, I did not through a ball of red thread to create this picture. This is a flower I saw at Thoppur Herbal Park on the way to Salem. It has a striking combination of colors that make it look dressed in style. This was taken early morning. You can still see some dew drops on the flower.

I do not know what specie of flower this is.

Hope you enjoy looking at this beauty.

Hi Murali,
I've never seen a plant like this before. Quite interesting. Thanks for sharing it.

Hello Murali,

This flower has beautiful colours and the shape is also very nice. Sharpness is good and contrast against the colour of the background is nice too.


Hi Murali,
Never seen this interesting flower before. But, it's beautiful. TFS.
