Thought for the weekend

"Give each day the chance 

to become the most beautiful of your life!"

[Mark Twain] 

Shell Ginger, Alpinia zerumbet


  1. das ist eine sagenhafte Bl├╝hte
    die Natur vollbringt nur Wunder

  2. Hi Evelyn,
    Hey, that's a beautiful bloom! Mine is blooming for the first time in 3 years, so I'm thrilled.
    Congratulations on the Illuminated blogger award. You deserve it and it's always fun to visit here.

    Thanks for passing it on. I will take a look this summer and read about it. :0) You're sweet to think of me.

    I'm still in school for ONE MORE WEEK and can't even get outside to look at my own garden! Ugh.
    Will write soon.
    David /:0)

  3. Ohhhh..
    That is truly a beauty.
    I had seen the plant in many places - planted by the roadside and parks but never seen their blooms.
    These looks so much like orchids.

  4. Stimmt, sie blueht schoen, aber leider ist diese Ingwerpflanze wuchernd. Sie uebernimmt das Teichbeet :-/

  5. David, this ginger flowers on the second year growth. so if it freezes you will have to wait two years for blooms. This past winter was mild, so we have flowers :)

  6. this sure is a monster plant, but yes, the flowers are so beautiful :)
