Flower for the Day Magenta Flowers 4-5




This week we have different forms of magenta showing up.The first one shows that if you look close at the flowers of the
 Redbud Tree you can see the pollen bearing anthers on the stamens. They come right off the branch.


The anthers come off the curved filaments.


The phlox in the rock garden show the same phenomenon. Notice the different stages of flowering and the tiny  hairs on the cupolas.


This azalea is blooming early. The stamens are surrounding the taller pistils. Love is definitely in the air in 
magenta this week.
