Deadly Beautiful

I must be crazy, but I realize that I like to join different memes around the week! Not sure if I want to stop doing this since I have so many photos in my archives. I like to share what I've taken these past two years.

To be perfectly honest, joining the memes/themes is the one of the best ways to meet other bloggers, and to see other fantastic blogs out there in the world. I've checking into Encard system too, but I'm sure if I have enough time for everything I want to do.

Now, let's get to the fun part of this beautiful, but deadly looking flower! As you can see, it is totally pink, and exotic! I don't have a clue what it is or its name, but I am totally speechless with its beauty, and complex structure!

Do you know what it is?

The little teeth you see on the petals are quite sharp! They can cut through your skin if you are not careful. In search for a perfect angle, I made a mistake of brushing over these teeth. Also, these beautiful pink flowers were in a store, so I was on my tip toes worrying that the owner might kick me out.

Craving for more pink photos, visit Pink Saturday!

Update: G at Doves Today identified this flower/plant as Aechmea Fasciata, a member of the Bromeliad family. Thanks G, for the information! Registered & Protected

  29. Hi Mumsy,

    WOW! I don't think I have ever seen a plant that looks like that. I see looking at the comments that you did receive an answer. I'm glad to read that it isn't really deadly. :) Just popped over to welcome you to the pink family.

  30. Hi everybody,

    Thank you all for such a warm welcome to Pink Saturday. You're so supportive, and wonderful group of people!

    To those that think this flower is deadly, it is only deadly in the sense that it's so BEAUTIFUL..I didn't mean it the other way :-)

  31. Looks like the blossom of an aloe plant - definitely something from the cactus family. Maybe you could Google cactus blossoms or something.
    It is gorgeous!!!
    Happy Pink Saturday and thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  32. Though I'm late :-) yes it is bromeliad, but I've only seen a mini version from a neighbor once.

    Also, I agree about memes and meeting others. Through PS I get to meet lovely people out there.
