Dancing flowers

As I was browsing through my archives, I came across some photos

Taken one lovely summer’s day at the botanical gardens.

It was a day of flowers and smiles (that’s my daughter in the background);

Purple smiles

When pink leaves dazzled

In the sunlight;

PInk leaves

And bee houses

Perfumed the air.

Bee houses

It was a time of

Dancing flowers,

And time to stop

And smell the vivid heart of a hibiscus.

  5. πŸ™‚ Amazing way to tell and show aspects of summer! I dare to think of an early summer, let’s say in may, when I could have a dress printed with a “pink leaves dazzled
    In the sunlight” texture… It would be funny, right? Till then I’ll dare to imagine…or in other words I’ll try to put it in practice… Imagine: now i want a summer just like this: with “pink leaves dazzled in the sunlight”!! Inspired of… So thankful!!


    1. Flowers and memories are two ways to lighten up a day. In a cold winter like now, it is best to reminisce summer thoughts and happenings. Your pictures are very beautiful.
