Welcome to the last Blooming Friday of November. I have blooms in three colours today. To see what's blooming around the world, please visit Katarina at Roses and Stuff.
I found this Marmalade Fly on the bloom of the Golden thyrallis. This is also known as the Gold Shower and Rain of Gold. The small flowers bloom in clusters and are of a bright and cheerful yellow.
This yellow bougainvillea growing next to the wall blooms in the cooler months. It's at its best now.
Coconut blooms. It's such a blessed feeling to see blooms of either fruit or vegetable.
A touch of red here! I found this Bulbul bird perched on my neighbour's Star-fruit tree.
A red hibiscus blooms after a gap.
Buds on my potted salvia. I've planted some on the ground.
And guava blooms! There were only four blooms on the tree. Summer is the season for guavas but one does get a one or two fruits in early spring. I guess they don't want to wait that long;)
Thanks for stopping by. Blooming Friday, started by Katarina turned a year old last Friday. It's been such a pleasure posting flowers from my garden as well as from other locations. Seeing other participants' posts have been a wonderful learning experience as well. Thank you, Katarina!
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
