The Mystery of the Shima Higiri Flower Solved (Photos)

Remember the SHIMA HIGIRI FLOWER FROM OKINAWA, JAPAN that was driving me nuts just last week ?  Well, thanks to an alert reader the mystery has been solved.

Pagoda Flower


Orange Tower Flower


Pagoda Flower or Orange Tower Flower with Butterflies


Call it a Clerodendron, if you like.

This plant has origins in India, Malaysia and Sri Lanka.

It's scientific name is CLERODENDRUM PANICULATUM


My hat goes off to Lei Nekojima, the alert reader from Naha Okinawa, Japan.

She is a Comic Artist

I don't know if she drinks beer

Maybe, I'll meet her someday

And we'll drink beers together

Then, I'll ask her if she can draw a funny picture of me

So, I can get rid of that old guy-looking picture on my blog !

Have a peek at her website: http://homepage2.nifty.com/office_neko/

For solving the mystery of the Shima Higiri Flower, I think, I owe Lei a ThumbsUp.
