The sun is beginning to set, and i hurriedly took this last photo from the other side. Did you notice the popular signage at the left side of the photo? Yes it’s Starbucks with a drive-thru.

At the base of the arches are newly-planted passion plants that are already flowering. Sooner, these crawling plants will cover the arches. I could almost imagine being greeted by these colorful flowers hanging from the arches as i pass by this pathway and when that day comes i will surely take photos of them again.

Lining up the pathway are lantana flowers. Aren’t they colorful and gorgeous?

weekly photo challenge: in the background

It has been raining almost everyday and it’s a welcome respite from the summer heat. I love the crystal clear raindrops that form on leaves and flowers and i’m sure they are more thankful and happy for the arrival of rain.

While walking around my garden, i noticed this rain-drenched spiderweb on my passion flower plant. The raindrops are like nature’s cooling beads and i love how they sparkle as touched by the sun’s rays.
