Welcome to Blooming Friday. This week’s theme is Against The Light.
The first photo was taken a week ago but the other two were taken a year ago. With a theme like that, I did browse through my collection to choose what would best describe this week’s theme.
The outcome of an early morning shot facing the sun. My sponge gourd vine/Luffa cylindrica is covered in yellow blooms. This kind of gourd is a popular vegetable in our parts when tender. The mature ones are used as a sponge, hence the names–dishcloth gourd,vegetable sponge, and smooth loofah.
Dragonfly on barbed wire. I wasn’t facing the afternoon sun when I started clicking at this dragonfly but it flew away and I ended up with this shot. In retrospect I feel, I would not have caught the detail on the wings like this. Some consolation!
And last year, my potted plants had to be shifted to the terrace due to the changes that we made to the house. It was a temporary thing but I spent a lot of time there. It didn’t really matter that the plants were all clumped together irrespective of the types and the sizes. Knowing that they would not always remain there, and knowing that they would eventually find their particular spots later, was in itself, a comforting thought.
