It’s going to be 105 degrees this week in Southern California. What?! I have a few flowers growing around my yard (that have not burned yet), but I’ve shared them all. To my delight, I found this strange flower growing out of bunches of bananas at the San Diego Zoo in the middle of the summer.
I had to stand on my tiptoes (and I’m 5’10”) to get a good shot of this beauty; sharing for Cee’s Flower of the Day (FOTD). For those of you that don’t know, San Diego is a bit milder and more humid than inland southern California, so things grow better there in the summer. I also believe that these strange and exotic plants grow well at the zoo because they have a large, natural canopy from all of the surrounding plants.
