  11. Hi! That red flower on the right side is Cruz de Malta. As kids, we used to pull the pistil out of the center and suck on the nectar. It comes in yellow as well as red.

  12. Hi there!
    I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely looove your sketches, they are so pretttty!
    I think the common name for those flowers are Ixora, we have those too in Malaysia, we too like pull out the pistil and suck the nectar ^^
