I did a double take, looking at the parrot flower. It really does look like a bird - how phenomenal!

Happy Pink Saturday and Happy 4th July (being from the UK, I hadn't realised it was Independence Day...).

Claudia said...

Oh my gosh, what an extraordinary flower! I had no idea it existed. Unbelievable! Happy Pink Saturday!

Tara said...

These flowers are so beautiful, they seem unreal.I had to look 4 or 5 times to make sure they were areal flower and not a bird. No wonder they want to keep it in Thailand, greedy little buggers, LOL!

Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Independence Day!
