Do you see what I see?

The pictures on this post were taken during my recent jaunt to the Singapore Botanical Gardens. With a little imagination, these flowers have taken on different personas in the mind's eye!
Yellow Cannons
Named the above "Yellow Cannons" as they reminded me of the cannons protruding out from old galleon Spanish ship of war, and the red ends of the yellow bud - I see the image of a blown up cartoon cannon (you know, the kind that always has its cannonballs jammed and exploding within the cannon and ends up creating this flower-like frayed edges at the cannon's mouth). Too much Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd in my younger days!

Graceful Swan
This in my mind's eye had the graceful curves of a long-necked swan with a full off-white body glistening with droplets of water floating on a green expanse of water. I loved the full balloon(y) shape of the tip of this heliconia variety, and given an extra tad of imagination, I might even see the full bustle skirts of a 19th century English lady.

Amidst the Shrubs
A heliconia plant, you may say. Look again, and maybe, you might see a row of red hornbills (birds) with their beaks all aligned?

Let your imagination run wild and let me know what your mind's eye see!
