    My camera is a cheap Canon PowerShot A510. 3 Megapixel. 4X optical zoom. But, I've taken some time to learn how to use the close up mode and other manual features. And, I use a great Mac program called Graphic Converter to fix up photos that would otherwise be dull and boring....

    Thanks so much for the kind words!

    When I first decided to do the "growing lotus from seed" project I had to ask Ms. B to tell her family to stop eating the lotus seed pods! The love them. Of course, huge ones are for sale in the market here and last time I was on the bus a young lady had a bunch she was munching on.

    They also use the fresh seeds (not dried) in soups and curries.

    I have (well, I hope I still have) a mass of these in my house on the NSW north coast. I started with two and within about five years there are (or were) about forty.

    I just got back from Oz and bought a bunch of bulbs for more Asiatic lillies there. In colours that I haven't seen in Thailand. Hope all six bulbs bloom.

    ^I have some nice yellow ones and some hot pink, but most are red like the one you posted.

    Do Arum lillies grow well here? I have seen them in florists but not in gardens. You can grow them in water gardens at home and in soil too.

    No problem. They are very drought resistant. I bought some yellow ones (not seen in Thailand) and some pink, white and pink & white ones.

    White to Pink

    This nice flower starts out pure white in the morning:



    And slowly turns pink through the day:





    Until the evening when it is quite a dark pink:



    (Sorry for the quality of the last shot. My little camera doesn't focus well in difficult lighting situations....)

    It's when we get a really good thread like this that I feel so disadvantaged in having such a slow dial up connection!

    Buadhai, is that colour-changing flower like hibiscus, only lasts a day? Or, does it last longer?

    ^Just one day. The flower in my series first bloomed yesterday morning and was shriveled by the late evening. Ready to fall off today.

    The flower looks like a single Hibiscus, but the leaves are not right.

    Any ideas?

    Can you show the plant leaves, BH? Then you get an idea which family it's from. Hibiscus usually have long stamen, no? And is it fragrant? Lovely whatever she is.

    Don't think it is Hibiscus. The majority of hibiscus are single flowering and usually flower on a juncture (sp) between the branch and the leaf.It is also only a single bloom whereas in the first picture there appear to be multi bud on the same flower stem. Agree with Jet that Hibiscus for the most part have a long stamen.

    I took this today. You can see the leaf shape pretty well with a newly opened blossom and some spent ones from yesterday:

    The flower looks like a peony. Some of them are one day bloomers but I havent heard of any that change colour like that.

    Knew I had seen a photo of these before, I think it is this



    Took this at Queen Siriikit Botanical Gardens on video and uploaded pic from it. Now to find the video and see if I got the name of it. One of my first thoughts was that it looked like a member of the Laveteria family.

    ^The plant actually belongs to a neighbor and is quite large. About four meters high, I would guess, and covered with dozens of new flowers every day.
