First Light: Sun-drenched Datura
Wow folks! I wasn’t ready to publish, but looks like these flowers wanted to come out and say, “HI!”
When a painting has that run-away hard-headed stubborness, I give it its rein and let it fly! I’ll do the same for this one!
This is for this week’s Wild Weekly’s Let’s Be Wild challenge! Can you guess that this week’s subject is FLOWERS?!!!
Enjoy the runaway colors arranged with respect to a color wheel!
Looking up, I admire the alamanda.
Called “Malinche” in Costa Rica, this is also called Royal Poinciana.
Manzana de Agua or Water Apple has a puff of a blossom! Its delicate fruits are like a cross between an apple and a pear.
Lovingly called “Coralito” in Ecuador, this prolific climber graces many fences in the country.
Weaning into the purples and blues, the lowly morning glory smiles in the early-morning sunlight!
A vine that grows stretches to the treetops in the dry rain forest, this transplant was quite happy to be upgraded to garden status!
From the coastal Pacific to the Highlands of Cuenca Ecuador, the bright colors of flowers brighten the scene.

Back to the Coast, we soften to pastels of the exotics.
The passionflower/maracuya is equally exotic.
I hope you enjoyed these high-spirited flowers that were quite impatient to say, “Howdy” to the world!
