WHERE’S MY BACKPACK? TRAVEL THEME CHALLENGE: Blossoms#2: Money Tree

DSC_2213

The Money tree, or more appropriately, shrub, has many varieties, they do not even look alike. I think when a plant bears flowers or fruits that are perfectly round, they tend to be called money tree. Well, it doesn’t matter, because this particular one has dull red flowers that certainly looks like a million dollars. 🙂

I believe that people who love the gardens and who have an appreciation for flowers, are well balanced people. The more we love the earth and its beauty, the higher is our level of our awareness of the transcendent. That is why gardeners are awesome people!

This is my SECOND ENTRY to Ailsa’s Where’s My back Pack Travel Theme Challenge: Blossoms.

  1. That includes me then. LOL My grandaunt used to have this flower in Ilocos. I don’t know what it was called but it wasn’t a money tree but it reminds of Japanese umbrellas.

  2. my niece in dagupan has the same exact flower, except that hers is in ivory white. so dainty and pretty looking. i didn’t ask the name but i won’t be surprised if it’s a money tree in bloom.
