Some Sunday Morning Flowers

A little stroll through the garden this morning with camera in hand to see what would capture my attention and turn up nice on pixels.

Flame Vine, Pyrostegia ignea.

The ever blooming Butterfly Pea, Clitoria ternatea.

Yellow Alder, Turnera ulmifolia with one of our few Butterfly species in Hawaii.

Yellow Alder is a tough bug free small almost shrubby perennial flower. In full sun it blooms year round. Alas, the blooms while many are scattered and dispersed on the plant. It does not give that solid floral cover of say Impatiens and is thus look over and down upon as being insufficient and lacking in "Color".
