The Flow of Life


I found this cute orange-like fruits flowing from a tall bush near the church. It looks like small oranges bunched up like grapes flowing down the plants!
And the ones on the higher part of the plant seem to kiss the sky since the sun blessed us with sunny weather all week which is perfect for the intense renovation work happening around our house Heaven . . .

The week after, the orange-like fruits yielded small beautiful flowers!

What an exciting sight for me! I asked the name of this flower and I forgot! ;-) It sounded like a royal title like Queen of Sheba or something like that.

The flowers come in white and they feel happy and light in my hands!
And they come in lilac shades too with no scent . . .

One must have good macro lens to capture them since they are dainty and delicate and you have to go on tiptoe since the flowers are flowing on top of the plants! My hands were outstretched over my head so the shots were blurry. . .

I was excited to return the next day to capture them again when the closed buds are all open but its been a busy week. I am exhausted from the smell of dust, concrete, chemicals and the noise emanating from the frantic work going at the back of Heaven for two weeks now.

But I am excited for the new room for Luchie which was our old storage space for years! Imagine having that huge unused space collecting garbage (one tends to fill up a store room with unused stuff collected through the years instead of giving them away and letting go and collecting things that you use). I was aiming for a studio space for my work there amidst the stored boxes but Luchie traded her old room for my studio which I am now excited to have!

The spaces in our house Heaven are being cleared, cleaned and simplified for actual use. We really do not need a huge storage space (my brother Jojo have a huge pile in there as well!) so now we are clearing them all and to heal the energies as well. When you clean and renew your space you recharge your energies as well.

Soon, the gardeners will be sprucing our small garden and I will have more flowers for Maia for her MacroFlowers every Saturday and for TodaysFlowers of Santilli, Pupo, Sandy and Denise. Thanks again, Denise!

And this one is for Amy's Color Splash Sunday. Even white flowers look gorgeous amidst a monochrome background. Sorry, but no bokeh this week, Amy. ;-)

Hi Lui, I am away from home right now and am using my telephone to communicate. When I looked at our home page, I saw that it was last week's link. Hopefully it will change to the new one soon, but if it is the same tomorrow I will get in touch with Luis. I will also link your photos when I get home. So sorry but I can't do that right now and will be able to get on my compuer once I get home. Your photos are once again beautiful.

Such lovely contrast in colour between the orange fruits and violet flowers. This bush must be really attractive!

Interesting to see berries and flowers in the same time on the same bush.
Lovely photos Lui.

Nice and beautiful flowers.

Hi Lui, always happy to help. The problem you encountered has cropped up before. I am not sure why this happens, but every now and again we get the occasional 'hiccup'. Have a great week my friend and thanks for being such a great supporter of Today's Flowers. I am home now and back with my computer :)

Wonderful selective color!

Just beautiful Lui!
I love those little white flowers!

It's okay if there isn't bokeh... Still a gorgeous photo! The selective coloring provides the perfect little pop for that photo. :)

You must be anxious for the remodeling to be over. My parents just finished redoing one bathroom in the house, and are getting ready to start in on the other bathroom. I know that smell of dust and concrete all too well!
