Glowing candle – Banksia

 

A yellow candle,

Is a cylindrical Banksia.

 A Glowing cone against

The dark green leaves

Is native to Australia,

Pretending to be a single flower

Conspicuous to lure the bees and birds,

Why?

To prepare the next generation!

Banksia cone appears to be a single flower but factually is a bunch of flowers

 

Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning.

“A flower blossoms for its own joy” – Oscar Wilde

Blooming Jacaranda

 Botanists refer as Jacaranda Mimosifolia

A tree, native to Central America

Spread its roots near and far,

 And line the streets everywhere.

When summer comes

Jacaranda blooms to hide her leaves

With magnificent purple panicles

Showing off her wealth to the world,

That I am here….

The Bright Orange Clivia Lily

It is spring time again in Perth, Australia.

The flowers are blooming,

Birds are chirping and the weather is getting warmer.

It is the best time to go for long walks and admire the Mother Nature.

Below are the images of Clivia lilies which I have captured  on my smart phone.

The bright orange Clivia lilies are native to South Africa also referred as kafir lilies.

Is it  is politically correct to refer as “kafir” lilies nowadays?

“Yes, a deep lesson from the postage stamp. It attaches itself to a moveable material, the envelope and gets going. A good relationship keeps you going forward; a bad one keeps you static. Attach yourself to someone who is also going forward and you will also get there.”    ― Israelmore Ayivor
