Wordless Wednesday: Soft Pink Blooming Flower (Kalachuchi)

Wordless Wednesday: Soft Pink Blooming Flower (Kalachuchi)

More Wordless Wednesday

This is a beautiful flower, which I have always seen along the paths I walk from home to the MRT station or vice versa and also along the path from a bus stop to my sister’s house on some Wednesday. I finally got a chance to take photos of it, with my Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot camera phone, the other day when I was in Sembawang Park. I do not know the name of the flower. Sometimes the flower can come in red colour too. But the one that always catches my attention occurs in soft pink with a mix of white and a little yellow in the center.

The interesting thing about this flower is that it usually blooms together and looks like the shape of a ball (as in the first shot). However, once in a while I caught a solitary bloom (as in the second shot). Anyone know the name of this?

No matter how beautiful it blooms, eventually it will drop to the ground and the cycle starts again – the beautiful work of nature.

If you want a higher resolution of these photos, do feel free to drop me a message.

      @ Liza, I didn’t know what it is called until Daisy enlightened me. Joanne got it right in a way too. πŸ˜€

      @ Maria, I think it will be nice to see the variety over your side. πŸ™‚

      @ Jennifer, vegetables will be good for food. πŸ™‚

      @ Beth, thank you. πŸ™‚

      @ Sue, you are right, I already know the name it. It alright. I am wondering if Kalachuchi is only found in hot and wet countries like Singapore. πŸ™‚

      @ Musha, these shots are for your mom. πŸ™‚

      @ Dianne, let us just enjoy the flowers that nature brings us. πŸ™‚

      @ Tomas, even when the bloom drops to the ground, it is nature’s best fertilizer for the future bloom. And that is the beauty of nature – so self-sustaining especially when Human is taken out of the equation.

      @ Tellie, I didn’t know its name too until someone enlightened me. Not too sure if there is any other names given to it in different parts of the world.

      @ Liferamblings, definitely no denying its beauty. πŸ™‚

      @ Sarah C, yes, what I like best is the soft colors. πŸ™‚

      @ Mimi, the star shape is indeed quite unique and especially the center looks like a turbine. πŸ™‚

      @ Wife of a Sailor, Kim, Melanie, Amber, Modern Mom, thank you. πŸ™‚

      @ Auntie E, too bad I did not smell anything; maybe my nose is not sensitive enough. πŸ™‚

      @ Dad Forever, I think I love flowers too and that explained quite a number of flower photos on my blog. πŸ™‚

      @ Beaded Tail, that is also what I like about it; the softness of the petals. πŸ™‚

    Beauty of the flowers (as well as the perfection of you shots) deeply touched my heart. My coming here was like taking a sip of fresh air. Thank you.
    Your text was worthy pondering deeper too. You wrote “No matter how beautiful it blooms, eventually it will drop to the ground and the cycle starts again – the beautiful work of nature.” That’s so true, yet it was hard to identify oneself with what was dropped to the ground already. Nevertheless, the beauty of your shots (the glorious work of nature) sat me back in awe.
    Though I live with my disabilities and consequently can a little to do, yet I too have the right to rejoice and I applaud the hot to you.
    Thank you once again

    It’s been a while since I stopped in. Flowers are what keep us sane. Without them to make us pause and wonder about the colors then are day would be so bland with just work or what ever we all do all day long…

    @ VanillaSeven, yes, I think I saw one of that photos before. πŸ™‚

    @ Jeff, it was quite a while since I stopped in yours too. And it was interesting to read about your photographing experience with ‘vampires.’ Indeed, flower can make us pause and wonder about its beauty. Perhaps that why the saying, “stop and smell the flowers sometimes.” πŸ™‚

    I am so happy that you stop to see the flowers. This is a special gift you know. So many people would just walk on by.

    Thank you so much for sharing these special flowers. It also shares a part of your heart.

    1. Symphony of Love Post author

      @ Bumbles, sorry to disappoint you; somehow it doesn’t seem to have any smell. I was quite close to it and yet I don’t smell anything. πŸ™‚

  5. Symphony of Love Post author

    @ Tammy, indeed, flowers are special gift. Now that you mentioned, I have almost always taken glances of flowers when I walked past them. πŸ™‚

    So pretty πŸ™‚ Those photos made me think of my childhood that I spent in tropical countries. My native country has many beauties, but I still do miss those that I no longer see.

    I am not sure that there is much in life that can beat the perfection of a flower. So simple, yet so completely beautiful.

    Thank you for sharing your lovely photographs with us.

    @ Francesca, indeed, so simple and yet beautiful. It is a pleasure to share; the ability to share and to give yield greater pleasure than to receive.

    Wow, that’s a really beautiful bloom. I love the contrast of the orange and pink. Flowers really are amazing. I used to work at a youth ranch for kids that had gotten in trouble with the law, and everyday during Spring on my drive, the hillsides would be clothed with wildflowers. It was really beautiful. Your pictures brought me back there. Thank you.
