Timeless (26) Skies, Clouds & Some Flowers... Capricious May. Suita "Capriciossa" (II).














A cultivar similar of small violet flowers that looks like the blooms of snapdragons because of the flowers' fancied resemblance to the face of a dragon that opens and closes its mouth when laterally squeezed.

Wikipedia about : " Spider plant or Chlorophytum comosum, also known as airplane plant, St. Bernard's lily, spider ivy, or ribbon plant, is a flowering perennial herb. It is native to tropical and southern Africa, but has become naturalized in other parts of the world, including western Australia. Chlorophytum comosum is easy to grow as a houseplant; variegated forms are the most popular."

Wikipedia about : "Kalanchoe /ˌkæləŋˈkoʊ.iː/, or kal-un-KOH-ee, or kal-un-kee, also written Kalanchöe or Kalanchoë, is a genus of about 125 species of tropical, succulent flowering plants in the family Crassulaceae, mainly native to the Old World. Only one species of this genus originates from the Americas, 56 from southern & eastern Africa and 60 species in Madagascar. It is also found in south-eastern Asia until China."

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."

"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.*"

  2. Mi-era dor de pozele tale cu cer. Chiar daca au fost si ceva nori pe acolo... Vad ca infloreste craciunica. Nu stiam ca o face si in luna mai.
    Am vazut si un mozaic floral frumos, acompaniat de flaut si a fost tare bine!
    Multumesc, Alexa!
    O luna iunie frumoasa, frumoasa...

    1. M-am bucurat de acest mai, mai altfel, adesea racoros... Cu atatea schimbari de nuante si toane, picuri sau stropi, diverse capricii surprinse in mersul norilor pe cer!! Da, a inflorit craciunica dupa cativa ani de stat *-* si cand credeam ca nu mai face boboci, ne-am trezit cu cativa cam timizi, ce-i drept! am aflat ca i se mai spune "Flor de maio"...
      Multumesc mult si asemenea va doresc o luna iunie frumoasa si plina de bucurii!
