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.
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!
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.
