Park gate and flowers

Garden gate and flowers
Actually this shot doesn’t focused on the blue gate barred in spike/arrow bars, but on the flowers which are commonly known as spider flowers or spider plants belong to the family of Cleomaceae. Close to the gate of Anna Park in Yercaud, the colourful flowers make beautiful lines on both sides as inviting visitors into the park. Though it isn't a big park or garden, there are number of beautiful flowers esp. roses to admire and during summers they conduct flower shows displaying number of flowers.

I was looking for a photo for Good Fences Thursday (run by Run A Round Ranch) and come across this look like newly painted gate of Anna Park from my storage in laptop. To say about the spider flowers, they are native to South America and blooms in purple, pink or white with four petals and six long stamens.

It is a very inviting entrance. I like the colors of the gate. The spider like flowers we have over here as well as the red flowers. I can't think of their name right now. I bet it is a great place to visit.

That's a neat looking fence the blue/red color combo really stands out. I've never seen this type of a Spider flower before but it's just gorgeous.

The blue gate overshadows the flowers in the first pic. But the flower is in all its splendour in the second. Super shots :)
