Blog Update

It’s been a while since I last posted something here. Been updating my main blog though  Dreams and Escapes regularly now. You can see it at the right corner of this blog.

I’ve been busy for a while and just forgot to update this site.  Hopefully, by the time I am done with my free limit at Dreams and Escapes, I would be able to update this blog regularly.  Here is something that I’ve tried experimenting with yellow  and white chrysanthemums on a plate of glass emerged in water. It’s not your usual flower arrangement  but they last longer.

Flowers are the nicest things to see aside from my small garden. I usually buy a bunch when we go to the wet market. It is cheaper that way.

Do you grow flowering plants too? What do you have in your garden?

Today’s Quotes

It’s one of those attempted macro shots that I like.  I used to grow  American climbing roses in shades of red and pink.  This reminds me of The Little Prince, that lovely book of  Antoine de Saint-Exupery.

“It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.”
“People have forgotten this truth,” the fox said. “But you mustn’t forget it. You become responsible forever for what you’ve tamed. You’re responsible for your rose.”

 

Reminiscing

Sometimes you wish the day would be as beautiful and as colorful as this.

I love Hydrangeas. I actually tried planting them in pots years ago but the heat in such a tropical country like ours is a bane for these plants.  They love partial shade and cool climate.

I always love taking photos of flowers, sometimes practicing on macro shots like this.  I know, I know, you remember the place and you smile at the memory it evokes.  You remember your delight in discovering such lovely blooms.

I miss you Caleruega. Someday, I am going back there to visit you again.

The Beauty Within

Is It Summer Yet?

 

IMG_20160312_105422Gosh it’s hot, really really hot outside. The sun bites the skin. In a few days it would be officially summer. One good thing about it though are the flowers that bloom in the garden. I took this photo early this morning.

It made me smile knowing other colorful blooms will follow, a perfect opportunity to practIce macrophotography.

How’s the weather at your end?
