A deepest of reds,
Lovely when fully opened;
The Mallow flower.
When I was visiting my parents two weeks ago, I spent some time walking about in their backyard garden, to gaze upon and admire all the various flowers and plants that my Dad lovingly tends.
This was the first time for me to see one of their favourites – the mallow. The flowers are huge and enthralling to look at.
Here is a close-up of its center….
The beauty of nature in its finest of details and design….
I had meant to take a photo of the flower with my hand beside it to show perspective, but in the excitement I forgot to do that, so my parents kindly sent me one from their collection.
In this final photo, you can see the comparative size of one of the mallow flowers with my Mom’s hand next to it.
