Flowers of the Ramalhão



Some branches are already empty of leaves and, at the same time, we still have flowers.
Taken at the garden of Quinta do Ramalhão, a convent school belonging to the Dominican Order, where my older daughters studied and my little one still is.

For Today's Flowers.

A beautiful Datura but don't be fooled as it's a poisonous plant and sometimes smoked by addicts. I love it - not to smoke! - to look at. Love that gorgeous soft pink.

You still have lovely flowers, to photograph. Ours are mostly frost-killed.
