small hearts2_72.

I was so excited to see these little flowers shoot out from my eyelash plant a few weeks ago. They form at the end of long spikes, in small clusters.

I’ve had the plant for nearly ten years, and didn’t even know that it flowered, but I moved it to a windowsill recently, and it must have liked it.

These are tiny blooms, about half a centimetre each little heart, so I needed my macro lens. I am working on some in black and whites, as I just love their shape and form, but I couldn’t resist sharing these now just as they are, with their delicate icecream blush..you’d almost think it was Summer to look at them!
