All Things Bright And Beautiful Part 2 | Flash Post 360
Haven’t you called one of your earlier posts by the same title? If I remember right, that was a post about our four-legged babies looking gorgeous with flower braids in their hair and that elf-like flower you spotted and clicked.
That’s exactly the post I am writing a rejoinder to as one of our readers, Gunjan Saxena, wrote in asking for the name of the plant because, despite being a florist and, despite her father being in the same business for over 39 years, neither have come across anything like this flower! Neither had I till I suddenly spotted this tiny wide-eyed face bobbing his head and looking at me straight into my eyes! I was amazed by this freak of nature and clicked a picture of it to show my family members and my blog readers. After reading Gunjan’s query, I thought of a way in which I could respond to her mail convincingly.
What did you do?
Armed with my camera, I went in search of that plant with the elf-like flowers hoping I’d find it again.
Did you find it?
See below. It may not look exactly like the earlier one perhaps because it seemed like an older flower with the tips of its petals slightly dark and drooping as compared to this flower but it’s of the same genre. It has five petals and the same hair strands. The colour of both the flowers is identical. Only, in the earlier picture, the stubs on both sides of the jaw had drooped and were black in colour while the stubs here aren’t drooping and aren’t black.
I’d say it looks a lot like the earlier flower if you ask me. Maybe Gunjan or her father will now be able to throw more light on it and tell us what the plant is!
