:Today's Flowers #111/Ruby Tuesday: Vietnam Rose

Click the image to enlarge
This is my take for this week's Today's Flowers and Ruby Tuesday.  This was taken in the village where my MIL lives.  We had a weekend vacation there and rounded up the village for a morning exercise.  When I noticed these petite blooms outside the gate of one house the owner suddenly came out and talked to us.  I thought she didn't want strangers but on the contrary asked me if I want to get some blooms so I can grow them also.  What a sweet neighbor.  She then asked us who is our relative in the village but guessing as she ask us confirming her guess because she said my husband had the same deep set eyes and Indian looks :-)

Now we also have the same blooms in our garden but I want to go back there to get some more lavender and pink blooms.  There are variety of vietnam rose colors like red, yellow, pink, lavender and red orange. 

Happy Monday! To see more lovely flower entries for today's flowers and red  themed photos at Ruby Tuesday click the badges!

They are so pretty! Over here, they are called Japanese Rose and so easy to grow them.
