This photo is my tribute to the four elements: earth, air, water and fire.
Do you know that the earth‘s atmosphere and the position of the sun from the horizon determines the colors of sunset? I’ve read that when the sun is closer to the horizon, the sun’s light passes through more air. This scatters away the shorter waves like blue and the colors that shine through are red, orange and yellow which makes the sunset appears to be fiery orange and/or red in color. The colors become even more dramatic as they are reflected on water.

Late last year, i found a nest in my garden and blogged about it here . I managed to visit the nest everyday and took a lot of photos but wasn’t able to make a follow-up entry about it. With Escape as the new theme for this week’s photo challenge, now is the chance to share with you the photo highlights of my exciting garden finds.
Day 1: I found 2 eggs in the nest.
Day 13, i found out that only 1 egg hatched and i couldn’t find the other egg.
Day 15, i noticed how remarkable it had grown in just 2 days. I always see mommy bird guarding its baby. When its her time to hunt for food that’s the only time that i could go near the nest to take photos.
Day 17, the baby bird is now partially covered with tiny feathers. It had grown much bigger with eyes still partially closed.
Day 20, almost all of its skin is now covered with feathers. It had grown bigger and almost occupying the entire nest.
Day 22, the whole body is now covered with mature feathers and it’s body is now as big as the nest. It is obviously well-fed, thanks to the devotion of the mommy bird in feeding its young.
Day 23, i visited the nest again and found it empty.
I’m sure it had learned how to fly and escaped the boundaries of its nest ready to face the world… and the life cycle continues…

With only 2 seasons (dry and wet) in my country, i thought i could not participate in this week’s photo challenge. It is summer and it tends to be really nasty hot but the arrival of some tropical rains brought life and joy to the plants and trees.
Here are some photos i took of flowers and they must have been my flower symbol since they all have stars but i don’t even know its name. Aren’t they pretty?

Introducing… Tobi, a new member of the family. He is a playful bundle of joy. His past time is bullying the kitties and my other doggie Kristina. He loves to play a lot and run like crazy and chase the cats.
This photo was taken when Tobi was just 2 months old. Now that he’s a bit bigger and fatter, he can’t make himself fit under the wooden cabinet anymore.
Another photo of Tobi at 2 months old.
Here’s how Tobi looks now at 5 months old.

Sometimes to make way for progress, it is inevitable to cut across a mountain to build roads. Sharing with you these photos i took during a road trip to Subic via Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx). The SCTEx makes going to Subic more scenic, faster and less tiring.

Before anything else, starting today, i would be posting some of the things i do from day to day. Well, not doing it everyday but i wish i could especially if there’s really some interesting stuff to share with you. Anyway, i would label it as my e-journal and this is my first entry.
While walking around the garden this morning, i chanced upon this all clustered up at the doorstep. I think the pattern they made is pretty awesome.
The scent of the citrus tree flowers is so refreshing. Every twig has flower bulbs ready to open. Sooner, i would be harvesting lovely fruits from this tree.
My jasmine is in full bloom too and emitting a sweet scent especially in the evening. Sometimes i pick some unopened ones and make leis out of them.
It rained last night and i love the raindrops on the zamia leaves. They look like heaven-sent crystal beads that are cooling the plants during this hot summer days.
I could stay a while longer in my garden but i really need to do some errands. It’s enrollment time and off i go to my daughter’s school then had a very late lunch at the mall. Here’s what we had for dessert… cupcakes.
The cupcakes are from the newly-opened Vanilla Cupcake Bakery and they taste so heavenly good. Going back again to try other flavors.
Well, it’s been a busy day but it’s all worth it. By the way, can you guess what’s in the first photo forming a cluster? Not sure what it is? click here for the answer.
