Wow! Everything looks so healthy. These days in Lahore everything is scorched. It's near complete devastation aside from blooming bouganvilleas.

The beautiful surprise (1st picture).
You had me tricked until I realise it was a union of two rain lily flowers.
8 inch flower on 12 inch plant a sight to see, lovely Hibiscus.
