Macro Flower Saturday 35-Anthurium lily

Welcome to a new round of Macro Flower Saturday!
I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.

This year, we have a beautiful, long autumn (so far), with bright sunny days and no rain.
At this time of the year, almost all our flowers are gone, except a few stubborn wildflower, which don't mind the light frost during nights.

A part of the world never sees winter and continues blooming all year round, so I hope we will see many interesting flowers from these countries, while ours rest.

However, winter will not stop us from taking flower photos; I'm sure, you have many, gorgeous potted flowers.
My photo reserves for winter are mainly house plants and cut flowers.

For starters, I share this bright red Anthurium lily, also called the Flamingo flower.
It is a common flower, for most of you, thought is has a very interesting structure.
The waxy, heart shaped petals of the Anthurium make the impression of an artificial flower.

Red AnthuriumThey come in many colors, from pure white, all shades of pink and reds, orange and even green.
I share with you just the red one today but I'll post Anthuriums of other colors too, in future post.

Yes, we have that a lot in my country but not in my house. Maybe I should have one planted because it is really beautiful! I prefer the white ones.

These get even more popular coming up to Christmas especially the red ones. They have such long lasting flowers too. They really hate getting chills and their leaves go brown so if you buy one keep it covered when leaving the shop and don't leave it in the car for any length of time especially on cold days. Your photos are lovely Maia.

Thank you for providing this beautiful challenge each week! Your flower photographs are so lovely....truly inspirational.

Nathalie said...

Such a nice bright red color!

I agree, they give the impression that they're fake because of the texture and the shape.
