Anthurium Andreanum

This plant is a cultivated hybrid of an Anthurium andreanum and belongs to the family of the Araceae. The flowers are tiny on the yellow stem.

Anthurium is a large species, belonging to the arum family (Araceae). Anthurium can also be called “Flamingo Flower” or “Boy Flower”, both referring to the structure of the spathe and spadix.

Anthurium flowers are small and develop crowded in a spike on a fleshy axis, called a spadix, a characteristic of the Araceae. The flowers on the spadix are often divided sexually with a sterile band separating male from female flowers. This spadix can take on many forms (club-shaped, tapered, spiraled, and globe-shaped) and colors (white, green, purple, red, pink, or a combination).

Purple Wild Flowers

Purple wild flowers growing in a grass ditch in Commauns, Burren, Castlebar, Co. Mayo, Ireland.  If you look closely at this shot you will see that there is actually is actually a fly on one of the flowers which i didn’t notice at the time 🙂 It is called Herb Robert

Dandelions

Dandelions – The dandelion is a perennial, herbaceous plant with long, lance-shaped leaves. They’re so deeply toothed, they gave the plant its name in Old French: Dent-de-lion means lion’s tooth in Old French.

They grow individually on hollow flower stalks 2 to 18″ tall. Each yellow flower head consists of hundreds of tiny ray flowers. Unlike other composites, there are no disk flowers.

The flower head can change into the familiar, white, globular seed head overnight. Each seed has a tiny parachute, to spread far and wide in the wind.  The thick, brittle, beige, branching taproot grows up to 10″ long. All parts of this plant exude a white milky sap when broken.

Orange Flower

Nice bright orange flower to brighten up this Tuesday afternoon – I would call it an orange daisy, but there is probably a proper name for it…

Green

Green flower bud/centre. I’m not sure if this is a flower of it’s own but I really love the texture and the shades of lime green and into slight shades of yellow…

Adare Manor

Restoration works began on the Manor in 1987 when it was acquired by the Kane family from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. It took little more than a year , but when the Manor was finally completed in 1988 Adare Manor as a hotel was now a world class home away from home. As a 5-star luxury hotel, the manor boasts such guests as ex-US President and First Lady, Bill and Hillary Clinton.

The Robert Trent Jones, Sr. Golf Course was opened in August 1995.   Adare Manor attracts anglers from around the globe on account of its excellent trout fishing in the River Maigue.

Also on the Manor property sit two intriguing ruins; The Saint Nicholas Church and Chantry Chapel. Both date back to the 12th century. St. Nicholas is the only accessible ruin, as the Chapel sits in the middle of the golf course and casual foot traffic is not allowed.

One of the more intriguing features of Adare Manor is the lettered text carved into the front of the south parapet which reads – “Except the Lord build the house, then labour is but lost that built it.”

Pink Flower

Pink Flower – with hints of white and yellow through the beautiful petals.  I thought this flower was very pretty and warn, nearly like a pink daisy but on a larger scale.  Not quite sure what this flower is called – apologies!
