cee’s fun foto challenge: the season of spring

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?

UPDATE: The flowers are called MUSSAENDA. Thank you Maria.

photo/s of the day: pink wildflowers

For a newbie like me, i think flowers are the most easy to photograph. So, while visiting my mother’s garden, i took a few shots of these pink flowers. My mother got this plant from one of her walks. She was so attracted to the lively pink color of the bell-like flowers so she got some stems and planted them in her garden hoping it will grow and bloom. Well, they did and here they are now.

Wishing everyone a happy Monday 🙂

travel theme: new

Posting a photo a day is something NEW to me and a new challenge for 2013.

I need to warn you though that i am not a good photographer but i will try my best to post good if not better photos. Oh dear me, can i really do this on a daily basis? Wish me luck! Thank you Alastair for your motivation 🙂

What a better way to practice taking photos but right in my own backyard.

My PHOTO OF THE DAY: pretty little flowers.
