saturday morning while i was having my breakfast at the kitchen island, Will pointed out to me the beautiful flower that had blossomed in the pond
a water hyacinth!
are you impressed i know that?
yeah, me too
i quickly finished my breakfast, grabbed my camera and got out to the yard as fast as i could
its beautiful colors reminded me of the vibrant irises in west virginia (from THIS day)
spending much of our time either inside or out in the backyard, we hardly spend any time in the front yard. but, how could this beauty go unnoticed?
and this thing growing in the same bundle of green. it kind of freaks me out. it is so weird/medieval
these grow on a short tree by the pond and it is always blooming
these little purple cuties are making a come back
these pinkies on a succulent like plant
more roses to come. i pruned the bush
always blooming. and just to make sure, that is not rain. that is a bamboo fence in the background. i know, tricky…
i tied some of my orchids to the tree. we will see how they do
the little calla lily is also making a come back
finally found out what this is growing on the walls of Lily’s balcony. it is a climbing fig aka ficus pumila. not necessarily edible although the asians do make a jelly out of it
and you guys…. even though the carambola has become my least favorite fruit, look how beautiful its pink flowers are!
i climbed on the ladder but i couldn’t get any closer
and my glass spirit ball from west virginia finally got hung up. a reminder that maybe carambola do not suck as much?
