Welcome to Blooming Friday! For more posts to see what's blooming today, please visit Katarina at Roses and Stuff.
The pink blooms of the Coral Vine/Antigonon leptopus snapped on an early morning walk in the neighbourhood. This blooms throughout summer and the sight of the heart-shaped flowers is enough to lift one's spirits on a hot summer day.
Passing by a temple on the way to a friend's house, I couldn't resist photographing these pink frangipani blooms.
Not really happy with the photo of the tree, I gathered up some fallen blooms and to my delight, I saw that there was a Coral Jasmine/Nycthanthes arbortristis tree as well. I found a few jasmine blooms as well and placed them on the grass. I love the contrast of these colours!
From my neighbour's frangipani tree, several blooms fall into my yard. I usually collect them and place them in bowls of water. Here's a few on a plate.
And blooming in my garden now, is the Pink Jasmine. The bloom of Jasminum polyanthum is pure white. But the buds have a pinkish tinge on the outermost petals.
The tiny white blooms of the Asparagus Fern.
I hope you've enjoyed going through these pictures. There'll be more next week for another "Blooming Friday".
Glory be to God for dappled things- For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow; For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim; Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches' wings; Landscape plotted and pieced--fold, fallow, and plough; And all trades, their gear and tackle and trim. All things counter, original, spare, strange; Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?) With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim; He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change: Praise him. Gerard Manley Hopkins
