Botanical Name: Anthurium andraeanum
Although this flower is native to South America (Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru), the first time that I saw Anthurium was when I was visiting Hawaii.
At first, I didn’t think it was real—I couldn’t stop staring.
I reached out, touched it, and found it was live!
So I took a picture. Pictures last longer (or so I am told).
Such an interesting flower!
Purely and simply
Reminding me of something…
No need to say what.
