night stalk


I was readying for sleep last night and thinking where to go for my camera excursion when I realised I had nothing to post for today! I jumped out of bed, very calmly of course, and went commando in my garden. It had just drizzled and the air was cool. After 20 minutes, I came up with nothing. Then, when I was ready to go back in to the waiting comfort of my bed, I saw these. Being dark, I had to use the flash. Not knowing what the result would look like, I left it till this morning. I really like it. My mother said it's part pf the Frangipani/Plumeria family. I searched the web and I still don't know if she's right. Anyone?

The result of you night stalk'ing' is very handsome. You have such a colourful garden which I found amazing. At the moment I'm trying to grow chillies on my windowsill and they are growing nicely but no flowers so no chillies in foreseeable future.
It would be fabulous if we could see your whole garden because flowers you have there are just great.
Hope you are satisfied with the outcome of your play, when is the premiere?

I know nothing about flowers. I can only enjoying the beauty of them. But this one is lovely and looks so fresh with the water drops on it.

Beautiful capture from the night raid. And i thought exactly the same as Jazzy - let's see some of the whole garden.

I hope you have a good fence and non nosy neighbors, or someone might have gotten a show (and not the type your in now)!

Very nice shot! The flash really makes the colors pop.
