PS099 A  flower from one of the common weeds in Oman with a scientific
name of calotropis procera (apple of sodom or rubber bush).

I found this flower while having my early morning photowalk just a stone's throw away from a friend's house in Shinas, a town located north of Sohar.  I would like to thank one anonymous person who commented on this post and kindly gave the name of the said flower. I also learned that it's not a rare flower but rather a common one and from a weed plant.  See comment below.  Whoever you are, thank you very much.

    1. That's Calotropis procera (Sodom's apple). It's not rare, but one of the commonest weeds of Oman.


Thank you for spending some of your precious time to see the photograph and to comment on my photo-blog too. Mashkur wagid!
