I'm happy that I'm back here in my favorite and one of the first meme I joined when I was in my first year of blogging. I love flowers and every where I go no flower escapes my lens lol! My eye always hunts their beauty no matter how simple and small they are like this red santan blooms which looks like pink in macro shots maybe due to sunshine. Santan (Ixora Coccinea) is an all season flower here in our country.

Studies revealed many healing properties of this flower like: wound healing, antimicrobial, antioxidant, antitumor, anti-inflammatory,anti-ulcer, protection against electroconvulsions and many other uses.

Happy Monday! To see more entries for today's flowers and ruby tuesday click the badges!
