NECTAR HUNTER

Kembang anting (Malvaviscus arboreus) is an old fashion plant that we grow in our tiny garden.
This plant is always remind me into my childhood.
Look ... the red flowers that hanging on the branches, my children always enthusiastic to pick the bloom and suck the nectar.


Actually several times ago this plant was infected by the white flies, so I cut all of the branches.
Now, the new shoots have grow and the plant looks a bit thrive.
The flowers hanging here and there.


My little girl took a bowl and picked the blooms.


Then sit down calmly while enjoy sucking the nectar from the base of the flowers.


She said "it's the real honey..."


Thanks GOD.
