Blooming Friday: A Touch Of White

Welcome to Blooming Friday. Today’s theme is A Touch Of White. The other day I came across a tiny clump of fungi on my potted plant. I had recently scattered used tea-leaves that I normally keep in a bucket to be used for my plants. I snapped away but didn’t think much about the shot. Later when I looked at the image, it instantly reminded me of the earrings that my mother and women of her generation wore, and still wear. Nature is the master designer and since time immemorial, inspiration has come in the shape of a leaf, a petal or bloom, an insect, or a tiny little clump of fungi that usually does not get a second look. Every time I see this picture I don’t think “fungi”. It’s “earrings”!!!

Another datura bloomed. I had posted a few pictures of the datura earlier. In this case, the purple is paler and the white, whiter.

To see more touches of white from across the planet, head over to Katarina’s ROSES AND STUFF.

Wish you all a wonderful weekend!

    All of it.
    These tiny parasols, the fallen blossoms, white with orange corola, the nursery. So cheering.
    BTW, that fungus on top of tealeaves in your pot, do you reckon it comes from the tsoil or the tealeaves? They always smell mouldy to me.

  5. Beautiful funghi Kanak! Never seen anything like it before.
