Happy Friday and welcome to this week's {floral friday}!
I hope you all had a good (and short) week after the long weekend. What do you have planned for this weekend?
Today's featured flower is the Medinilla magnifica. An amazing-looking flower if you ask me!

A few facts about the Medinilla magnifica:
  • The Medinilla magnifica was named after José de Medinilla y Pineda, who was governor of the Mariana Islands in the 19th century.
  • The flower is also known as rose grape.
  • The Medinilla magnifica blooms from early spring to late summer.
