WONDERFUL FLOWERS SOCKS / Antipast This Japanese company is pure genius. I have never seen such beautiful clothing and accessories. These socks do not look like much, but are sheer with embroidered flowers on them. Amazing, really!
Weird Flowers The world is full of weird and wonderful flowers that sometimes look so strange that we find it difficult to imagine them actually growing in the wild. Some of these are unbelievably odd.
Zinnias, such a sun loving, heat tolerant, hearty flower. Toss some seeds in prepared soil in late spring and watch your garden burst with color in no time. You can grow these in containers as well if your yard space is limited. Makes for a great cut flower indoors all summer long.
"Lobster Claw" - 'Heliconia rostrata.' "Also known as the False Bird of Paradise and Wild Plantain, the Lobster Claw’s cheerful flowers emerge from clumps of leaves that look like bananas. The reddish flower-like bracts actually hide the plant’s true flowers, which require birds with specialized beaks for pollination. An excellent landscape plant, the Lobster Claw can grow up to a height of 3.5’ tall and they bloom several times each year."
