This post is a “filler” to publish photos of some great flowers that I saw at the Botanical Park called Banana Vani-en in Izu Peninsula, Japan, and share them with you. The Botanical Park hosted some wonderful specimens of tropical plants. I was most impressed by lotuses and orchids and had a field day clicking them. Check out the last photo of this post too – I’d like to know the name of the plant and need your assistance. I have a chart identifying most of the lotuses that I have shown here – so ask for the names if you need them. Here are the orchids first:
Now here are the lotuses:
I felt a great sense of peace and happiness in the botanical park and wished I could have spent some more time! Needless to say, I was the last visitor to pass out of the gates of the park!
Finally, here’s an extraordinary plant with a purple flower that seemed to be growing from the tip of a pink leaf. Can you identify the flower?
Have a great day!
