There are many ways to interpret ‘double’ and just as many to interpret ‘rotation’. The other day, I visited the Amarillo Botanical Garden (ABG) looking for some willing subjects to photograph. Spring has not arrived yet so the outside garden was still dormant.
However, the Mary E. Bivins Tropical Conservatory at ABG provides a year-round tropical environment. That is where I found this double Chinese Lantern (Abutilon ‘Tiger Eye’).
Look at the flower petals. Can you see them in rotation?
FYI – Next week, we pack up the RV and head 1500 miles East to Broadway, VA. We will be on the road for 6 days. I will be posting from places like Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Fort Smith, Arkansas; Memphis and Bluff City, Tennessee; then Roanoke and Broadway, VA. I hope you come along for the trip.
Thanks for stopping by, y’all come back now.
