Today's Flowers


I always pass this flower on my way home. It is always visible on my way home but not on my way out. It is on the other side of the road which is the lane leading back to my house. I wanted to take a closer look but I never had the chance. Today, a Sunday, on my way home I was ready. I stopped but it was already dark by 5:30 PM. Since October, it gets dark early which lasts until the new year. Normally it gets dark here around 6:30 to 7 PM. So I have to use a flash. I have to tell you that I only have a kid camera so I can't take high definition or close-up shots. So I challenge myself a lot. . . .The nicest thing about this flower is not just its white color but that they bloom in pairs!

And I guess I'm lucky because today there are three of them! The other pair probably fell already so I have three flowers greeting me when I finally had the chance to see them up close. So strange and lovely to see something only on your way back . . . Have you ever looked back and saw something lovely? Or was there anything special that was visible to you only on certain occasions?
