Look at those colours, so beautiful Kanak I enlarged and saw the plant reflections in the drop of water, stunning, not a big fan of spiders but in your pics they are amazing. Kathy

what is the plant?

Lovely pictures - the plant looks very otherworldly and unreal as do the beautiful colours. No wonder the spider chose to hide amongst such bright surroundings. It is almost invisible!

It's so great you got rain. Just beautiful drops with that orange plant? Pretty neat looking.

Hi Kanak. Is this Jatropha podagrica in seed?

Mildred said...

You have outdone yourself with photography today Kanak! The reflection in the water droplets of that amazing color is so pretty.

Kanak, i also wanted to know the same thing as what Prospero asked. I have not seen the seed before. This beautiful thing looks like a reindeer horn with olives on top of it. Wonderful!

Hi everyone! Great to read your comments. Prospero guessed it right. It is the Jatropha podagrica or the Buddha belly in seed. I was walking around the yard marvelling at the patterns that the rain created and taking tons of photos. Easygardener calling it otherworldly and unreal does fit the description really well. Or Steph comparing it to reindeer horn and olives!!! How lovely!

This jatropha is a popular plant here and blooms almost throughout the year. I had posted the blooms for Bloom day sometime ago.

It's raining again and the weather has cooled down which is a wonderful respite. I wish I could send some your way:)

I love pics right after the rain. Everything looks so refreshed! And those raindrops look like mini crystal balls. No, just kidding. I agree with everybody else. The colours are my favourite combination and it does look rather otherworldly. And I even thought about olives and reindeer too!!

Glad you are getting some relief from the heat. We have lots of rain right now, which is rather unusual - but it's warm and we're happy!

Kanak, I just saw one tree today that has seeds at a coffe shop today! But the seeds were not as big as yours shown in the picture here.
