These beautiful flowers were not seen at a park. Instead, I saw them at a friend's house and they were amongst several interesting plants nurtured by her sister-in-law. It was in this garden that I encountered for the first time in my life the hoya, roselle and even lavender that I thought could only be grown in colder climates. There I was in that amazing garden. There were so many potted plants and some were so close to each other that their leaves became mixed up with each other. Some of the leaves in these photos do not belong to the flower. It did not bother me at all as the flowers were all I had eyes for.
