Timeless (28) End of Spring. Delight in sweet colors, corollas and petals. June.


It was like yesterday, that phenomenal Spring day,
With fluffy clouds and blooms all over.

It was like yesterday, a sunny, pleasant day,
with smiles and joys in our jolly hearts, forever!

It was like  "once upon a time", the phrase,
when the story told is lovely to be shared, embraced...

It was like a part of a moody blue sky
So ready to receive new paint, a new fresh look
In bright colors taken from fragile petals or green trees.

It was like yesterday, of course, Springtime,
with lots of reveries for some serene minds, among us...




But now and again, 
everyone can have new hopes, bold dreams,
Red-layered hibiscus in June. Because no matter what, how far or near 
from our imaginative, fugitive ideals
All of this could be, again.
You see...
Summertime is almost here...indeed!

Imperfect; seasonal poem without rhythm.

From Did You Know Category:
About Summer. About Hibiscus.

"Summer* is the hottest of the four temperate seasons, falling between spring and autumn. At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice. The date of the beginning of summer varies according to climate, tradition and culture, but when it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere, it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa."
Timing*
"From an astronomical view, the equinoxes and solstices would be the middle of the respective seasons, but sometimes astronomical summer is defined as starting at the solstice, the time of maximal insolation, or on the traditional date of June 21. A variable seasonal lag means that the meteorological center of the season, which is based on average temperature patterns, occurs several weeks after the time of maximal insolation. According to meteorologists, summer extends for the whole months of June, July, and August in the northern hemisphere and the whole months of December, January, and February in the southern hemisphere. Under meteorological definitions, all seasons are arbitrarily set to start at the beginning of a calendar month and end at the end of a month. This meteorological definition of summer also aligns with the commonly viewed notion of summer as the season with the longest (and warmest) days of the year, in which daylight predominates."

Red-layered hibiscus in June.
"Hibiscus*(/hᵻˈbɪskəs/ or /haɪˈbɪskəs/) is a genus of flowering plants in the mallow family, Malvaceae. The genus is quite large, containing several hundred species that are native to warm-temperate, subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. Member species are often noted for their showy flowers and are commonly known simply as hibiscus, or less widely known as rose mallow. The genus includes both annual and perennial herbaceous plants, as well as woody shrubs and small trees. The generic name is derived from the Greek word ἱβίσκος (hibískos), which was the name Pedanius Dioscorides (ca. 40–90) gave to Althaea officinalis."
"Hibiscus** are large shrubs or small trees that produce huge, colorful, trumpet-shaped flowers over a long season. Other common names include Chinese Hibiscus, Japanese Lantern, Rose of Sharon, and Tropical Hibiscus."

About Summer Solstice Full Moon
"Strawberry moon coincides with Summer Solstice for first time since 1967."* Read more info about on

Excerpts: "As the sun sinks beneath the horizon on the longest day of the year on the evening of Monday June 20, it will be worth looking up. Despite the name, the moon will not appear pink or red, although it may glow a warm amber. The romantic label was coined by the Algonquin tribes of North America who believed June’s full moon signalled the beginning of the strawberry picking season."
"The last strawberry moon occurring on the solstice occurred on June 22 1967. If you miss Monday's you'll have to wait another 46 years before you can see the full moon on the summer solstice with the rare event not happening again until June 21, 2062."

"Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.*"

Timeless (27) Corollas, petals and blossoms in June.


Can you imagine flowers in grey nuances?...
Not as a green, whole image of blooms and  leaves...
But somehow to think of all of these 
Just framed like in blurred reveries?

Can you imagine any flowers in pale shades,
like in the vintage pictures kept
so well in boxes for so many years?
Can you imagine all of these?

When the Spring no longer is...Imagine and keep
Like in frozen shapes, these blooms; 
in so pale nuances of grey,
images, patterns and petals
Of an endless vernal time with everlasting blooms...

A Spring poem without sense.

Wikipedia about: "Schlumbergera is a small genus of cacti with six species found in the coastal mountains of south-eastern Brazil. Plants grow on trees or rocks in habitats that are generally shady with high humidity, and can be quite different in appearance from their desert-dwelling cousins. Most species of Schlumbergera have stems which resemble leaf-like pads joined one to the other and flowers which appear from areoles at the joints and tips of the stems. Two species have cylindrical stems more similar to other cacti. In Brazil, the genus is referred to as Flor de Maio (May flower), reflecting the period in which they flower in the Southern Hemisphere."Wikipedia about "Pelargonium × hortorum, (also called zonal geranium, garden geranium, malva or malvón, is a nothospecies of Pelargonium most commonly used as an ornamental plant. It is a hybrid between Pelargonium zonale and Pelargonium inquinans. Availability includes the usual nursery "seed-grown" and the "cutting grown" types, which can easily be propagated at home by cutting and planting side branches. These are stocky and large. The flowers can be single or double. The leaves are often fragrant. The flowers come in many colors, including red, shades of pink and white. Recently, orange and yellow cultivars have been developed. Many cultivars have been grown since the late eighteenth century. Cultivars with very double flowers and no anthers are called Rosebud Pelargoniums since the flower never open completely and therefore resemble a rosebud."
