Isn’t she pretty?  It’s called Rattleweed.  The volunteer group that I joined in is starting another garden infront of its premises.  It is an extension of the current “Garden by the Waters” that we have.  This lovely rattleweed is one of the flowers planted there.  Just a few weeks there and it has already attracted a lot of butterflies.  Such a pretty sight in an almost bare garden..  We are still thinking of other flowers to plant there.  It may be quite a long process coz we also have to wait for the plants to adjust to a new environment (from pots in plant nurseries to earth in WWS premises), but the it’s always worth the wait.


  1. Never heard of rattleweed but it is beautiful almost a cross between a gladiola and an orchid the flowers are. Great shot

  2. I've never heard of rattleweed before!!! The blossoms are really close to looking like snap dragons.

    Winter Past is my link to Macro Monday. Do stop by when you get a chance. I'd love your company. Have a great week.

  3. Rattleweed is new to me, too. The colors are so vivid. Love the photo. Thanks so much for joining us.
