Photo: Pair of Slipper Flowers

Here is a photo of a pair of slipper flowers taken of the plant in my backyard.

The hummingbirds love these types of flowers.

The slipper plant is a rather unusual looking cactus with long, slender, green tubular stalks.

On occasion, a flower blooms.

You neglected to mention that you have deliberately chosen some plants that attract hummingbirds and butterflies.
