Agapanthus

For some reason, I like the look of this lone purple and white agapanthus with the backdrop of greenery and the tufts of dried grass in the foreground. The fact that it’s leaning and not straight, gives what I managed to capture, a sense of authenticity, n’cest pas!

Pride of Madeira

I literally stopped in my track, when I spotted these purple-blue flowers. I discovered later when I looked at my photo, that I had inadvertently managed to capture the sunlight streaming down over the flowers. Lucky me!

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.

Southern Magnolia

I managed to capture these magnificent magnolias in their various stages of bloom.

What a delight it is to see the bees enjoying the nectar!

There’s going to be this fake illusion that once you get there – wherever ‘there’ is for you – you’ll be happy. But that’s just not life. If you can’t find happiness in the ugliness, you’re not going to find it in beauty, either. ~ Joanna Gaines The Magnolia Story

Sunset on Ngapali Beach.

I still get surprised and delighted when a photo I took at Ngapali Beach in Rakine State, Myanmar, takes my breath away.

Question To You

I’ll preface this by admitting I will not be seen dead with rumpled clothes. 😊

Scenario:

Me: Could you put the iron on please?

Family member: Okay! Why? Are you going out?

Me: Just for my power-walk.

FM: Whattt?? You’re ironing your clothes just to power-walk?

Why bother? Just throw your T shirt on and go. NOBODY really cares if your clothes are rumpled or not.

Me: I CARE!!! I refuse to look like I slept in it and then got up to go for my walk.

A wise person once stated, β€˜Life is much simpler when you stop explaining yourself to people and just do what works for you.

Dear Readers,

I’m interested to hear from you. Do you iron your clothes before stepping out the door or do you grab them from the ironing basket and just throw them on crushed?

Each to his own so no judgement from me. Just mere curiosity! πŸ€—

Foxglove or Lady glove

Whilst these delightful flowers are enchanting, they are poisonous to human or animal touch.

Fortunately, Digitalis purpurea assists when a medicinal compound called digoxin is extracted and used in small doses to treat heart failure or abnormal heart rhythm.
