178. Macro Monday: Cotton Candy & Bubblegum

Well not really!  I fell in love with this bloom at the gardens, but don’t ask me what it is – there was no sign!  Doesn’t it remind you of Cotton Candy and Bubblegum??

A special thanks to Dutchbaby who identified this plant for me….it is a bromeliad….when I googled it, they said the common name was a silver vase bromeliad.
