Blooming Friday/ New Year’s Day

Welcome to the first Blooming Friday of 2010! The cosmos has just started to bloom and the hoverflies are here too. The yellow bloom of the Black-eyed susan vine was taken at an outing on the outskirts of the city. There’s something so cheerful about that yellow that I wanted to include it in my post. It’s a herbaceous prennial climbing plant from the Acanthaceae family and was happily blooming on a fence close to the roadside.

To see more blooms around the world, please visit Katarina @ ROSES AND STUFF.

I wish all my blogger friends and all visitors to this page A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

    Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year Kanak! I can see why you wanted to include that pretty yellow bloom. I wish mine had bloomed this past year. I know it was because I didn’t have it in enough sun. Hope you have a wonderful day!

      That snow…it thrilled me no end to have snow falling on tropical blooms and locales!! And since we’re getting that feature till Jan 4, I thought, why not? LOL!! Missed you too! And I thought I was the only one with major computer woes! Would love to be at your blog soon.

    Yes, Kanak di, there’s something about yellow – is it cos it makes us happy at the sight of it, just yellow and happy for no real reason at all! Lovely! 🙂

    Kanak, your picture of the white cosmos with the bee is truly beautiful. A wonderful Blooming Friday post to start off the new year.

      Thanks, Autumn Belle. Now quite a few pollinators are buzzing around the few blooms that I have. Busy taking their pictures…looking forward to all Blooming Friday posts:-) And yours is very much on my list!

    Beautiful picture of white cosmos…. A happy “snowy” new year to you. ~bangchik

    • kanak7 says:

      Snowy? LOL! It is getting colder now!:) A very happy new year to you too, Bangchik. Your vacation must have been wonderful! Have a great week!

    Hi Kanak, what a lovely way to begin the year! The little buzzer is so sweet, a reminder to us going through a colder than normal snap of temps that spring will soon bring us smiles galore. In the meantime, your photos and words will do the same. 🙂

      Frances…loved reading your words! The sights around us remind me so much of your spring. If only we had a lull in the growing/flowering period, spring would have been the highlight of the year! Thank you so much for stopping by.
