a word a week photo challenge: bisect

We’re having nasty weather today because of a super typhoon but i’m glad that late this afternoon the rain has stopped. I was feeling lazy the whole day and this weather makes me want to just snuggle up in bed with the kitties.

This week’s theme for A Word A Week Photo Challenge is BISECT. I really don’t have that much photos about scenery but i would like to share these photos that i think could fit in the challenge.

Here’a photo of a pink wildflower. Notice how the clear focus in the middle bisects the entirety of the photo.

Here’s another photo of a leaf which is full of rain droplets that look like crystal beads that glisten. The leaf tends to divide the photo diagonally.

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 🙂

photo of the day: orange flowers

This morning, i noticed orange flowers in bloom in my mother’s garden. When i asked her what those gorgeous looking flowers are, my mother said she doesn’t know because they just appeared in her garden.

Tomorrow, i’ll be back to my mother’s garden and will try to get some of these plants. I love the color of orange. Wildflowers or not, i want these plants in my garden.

Dear friends, do you know the name of this plant? I would appreciate it very much if you would message me what these flowers are. Thank you 🙂

UPDATE: The flowers are called CROSSANDRA. Thank you Arlene and Maria.

pretty little wildflowers
they open up as the sun rises
showing its bright lavender-colored petals
and close as the sun retires
for tomorrow is another day
they are going to smile just like today
