Red Button Ginger Flower

When I was little, I imagined heaven to be a place where popsicles grew on plants!

Wouldn't it be nice if it were true? 

These red button ginger flowers are close to what I had in mind.



 


The button ginger gets its name from the lovely flower head that emerges as a luscious red button.

What a pretty flower/plant! They do look like popsicles :) I think heaven is going to be far greater than popsicles growing from plants :) But I would imagine it could be possible to have those kind of plants there :)

Wow! What an amazing - and beautiful - flower this plant has!
Red button for harmony in the whole world! 😊

I wish you a wonderful new week, Veronica!

Giorgio said...

It's a marvelous red flower, Veronica!

Have a nice week!

You mentioned on my post you loved blue flowers. Well my favorite flower is any that's red. I love the contrast of complimentary red and green. Even a red Cardinal in a green tree. These are beautiful shots of this red ginger flower. Looks like the ants think so as well.

Popsicles on plants reminds me of Willy Wonka.

They do look like popsicles and I can see how a child could easily make that connection.

What an intriguing flower. Though there are far too many ants on them and they freak me out a bit.

Beautiful plant and flower! But I don't think slurping one on a hot day would be as good (or good for you) as a real raspberry popsicle ;>)!

NCSue said...

How unusual - I've never seen anything remotely like that!

Beautiful photos! I hope when we get to heaven, we will find popsicles growing in trees! :) I love that image.

Dear Veronica,
popsicles on plants, what a nice idea! :-D At least for the ants, this is very close.
The plant looks fascinating, I've never seen it!
Hugs and best wishes, Traude

How interesting.

I wouldn't mind popsicles growing plants here on the Earth. What a lovely idea! The ginger flowers certainly looks like that.

This plant looks great! Cheer up the garden or house (if it can be grown in pots, at home).
I searched on Google and found many species of ginger flower, with different aspects and scientific names. This seems to be Costus Woodsonii. Correct?

Have an excellent day, Veronica! ♥

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Those are pretty and unusual flowers. I see a lot of ants on them, but they will keep the aphids away.

Phil Slade said...

That's amazing Veronica. How beautiful. Needless to say we have nothing like that in the UK.

Natasha Sinha said...

Love these butter gingered popsicles. I love how our imagination runs riot when we are kids.

What a lovely share.

I’m live too.

They would be ideal if the bugs would not be on them. Nobody wants a bug on their Popsicle.

Tom said...

...I've seen them in Maui and I like them. It looks like the ant like them too!

Pieni Lintu said...

that's so cool!

Sandee said...

I've never seen these before. They are beautiful and the ants seem to love them very much too.

Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

Hello my friend, long time no talk too? hahaha How are you on this very nice day! I live in Illinois near the Fox River! Sunshine galore today and ooops the phone rang!!! It was my granddaughter to tell me she had her baby on the 10th. She wanted to wait until she was a bit better. How thoughtful. My Great Granddaughter (OUCH), name is Ellie (short for Elliana), and she has a one year old named Daniella. So time to celebrate. Have a nice day! Oh, and I have a new blog (it might be temporary, but I shall let you know or check by Steve's... everybody goes there! hahaha Anyway here's my link: https://thenewxmasdolly.wordpress.com/2021/05/05/wordless-wednesday-with-xmasdolly I'm still looking for a domain I'll be comfortable with and affordable.

What an interesting flower! I can see the resemblance to a popsicle. "Red" is always my favorite flavor of anything, if red can be considered a flavor. lol

Villrose said...

Wow! What a color!
