This photo was taken last 'winter'. We don't really have a winter in Northern Australia but this beautiful plant although quite plain 10 or so months of the year 'flowers' during the cooler months. We call it a Snowflake (and it definitely doesn't snow here), I don't actually know it's proper name. The flowers are really just new leaves that emerge white and they are lovely and soft. As time passes they lose their bright white colour and start to turn a pinkish colour as they are dying off. When it has finished flowering we cut it right back and as it regrows it thickens up and is just a plain looking plant again for the majority of the year.
This is what it looks like right now but in a few months it will start to flower and turn into a beautiful mass of white. I'm posting these photos because over at Our Beautiful World this weeks theme is SOFT. Thanks for popping in and make sure you check out the other great photos over on Our Beautiful World.
