Visit to the Flower center

Flower centers are usually out of town and therefor not easily accessible if you don't have much time. But that has changed now, a new flower center opened at the western city border and that's a 30 minutes walk for me.
I just discovered this wonderful place and I've spent about three hours there, photographing.

Summer is almost over and garden flowers are not exactly the sensation of the moment but they still catch your eye.

This is the gorgeous Medinilla Magnifica, native to the Philippines.

Those who named it, found it magnificent too. It's a petty, it's too big for my home.
I was lucky that my batteries died and I left voluntarily, spearing the employees from the unpleasant situation of throwing me out.

This last picture is for Macro Flowers Saturday.
Visit Scenic Sunday for beautiful scenery.

I love going around in nurseries to see beautiful blooms and plants. There's one quiet near my place and I've been there several times just to take photos especially just before the Chinese New Year, when they have a lot more than usual. I know some nurseries doesn't allow photographing.
