Is It Red Or Orange?


It belongs to the family of Musa Ornata (Bronze Banana). It is  highly attractive and is considered as an ornamental plant. Its leaves are long and wide with an orange mid rib running the length of the leaves. Its bloom is a bronze/orange that unfurls its blooming bract to reveal tiny banana like cream-colored flower.

This is the second time I’ve seen an ornamental banana blossom with this bright orange color, the other one is in a lovely pinkish /purple shade and grows like this too.  Our village janitor planted several of these and they are all in bloom , alongside red  and yellow Canna flowers.

About arlene

Life starts with a beautiful dream. Life starts in somehow believing that one day you’ll get what you wished and prayed for. Life starts with something you believe you can do and dream about. My entries here are mostly about my journey as a cancer patient, a cancer survivor, a mother, a friend, and about the books I read, places I want to visit and have visited, people I want to meet someday and mostly about the daily grind of simple living. Dreams and Escapes is about having enough faith to go on, the will to live no matter how difficult life may seem sometimes and grateful appreciations of all the things one holds dear. It is about the belief that I could share a little of my journey through writing and writing is an escape for me. When things get a little too hard to bear, I put them into perspective by sharing them here. Dreams and Escapes, why not?
