Flowers of May

It’s already June, but I took some pictures of the flowers that bloomed in May.

Bleeding Heart

Bleeding Heart

I’m still not sure why this is called “Bleeding Heart.” Probably because the white part looks like a heart (not sure though!) and the red main flower sprouts from the white part (what am I saying?), so it looks bleeding. My explanation sounds funny. >.<

This is what a bleeding heart flower looks like if it has not yet bloomed.

Although some of the amaryllis plants had flowers in March and April, it had more flowers when it started raining in May. I guess the plants start blooming flowers during the rainy season. I remember that they also had more flowers this time of the year.

This is another variety of amaryllis. This is actually red. It is not noticeable though because it has not yet fully bloomed.

Canna

This plant blooms all-year round (as far as I remember). It had more flowers a few weeks ago, but they already faded. This is the only one remaining. Fortunately, I was able to take a picture before it fades.

We did not have a lot of flowers this year because I stopped planting flowering plants since last year after I got irritated with the plant eating birds in our place. I actually started planting sunflowers last week and made an amateurish greenhouse by covering my pots with plastic. This is my way of preventing the birds from eating the leaves of my sunflowers. I just hope it works.

Calamansi

They are not flowers, but they started from flowers. >.< These fruits will be harvested soon!

Although I  started planting too late (last week of May), I still hope that I can produce good flowering plants this year.
