red bougainvillea being trained on our fence
they look like sleeping birds, nectar is inside that cap near the stem-end
Heliconia rostrata is a usual dry season character near our gate. I cut the tops of those crotons for the heliconia to have full showing. They will stay there even when the rainy season already started in May. They don't disappoint the gardeners for their long life, showy inflorescence, beautiful colors and they can thrive on neglect.
