Blooming Friday-Hidden

Welcome to the first Blooming Friday of 2011! This week’s theme is Hidden. Waking up to a new dawn and to the possibilities of all that is hidden and what will be revealed during the course of the day is a joy in itself. Especially in the garden, with nature.

Like the budding of a new plant you’re growing for the first time and the delights of finding out how the first bloom will reveal…

a stunning red…the fact that it’ll open up like this, showy and spectacular, who’d have guessed that the buds held such secrets?

Sometimes when you wait for a beautiful bird to make its magical appearance, reality is that half the time the bird/the beauty remains hidden. A kingfisher that I desperately wanted to photograph but ended up only with a flash of this vivid blue of its feathers as it remained hidden behind the mango leaves!

Serendipity in the garden

Cleaning up my backyard one day, while removing piles of wood, this is what I found. A nasturtium that had reseeded itself in an unlikely place. To find such treasures I can’t help admiring the tenacity of plants to survive in inhospitable conditions much like the hidden strength of the human spirit.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a great Friday!

    Unlikely place for a nasturtium. They can germinate in all sorts of places.

    I liked your Kingfisher picture. It must have been tantalising – a chance of seeing the whole bird but it would not oblige!
    Have a good weekend.
