Morning stroll in the yard…

Why do two colors,

put one next to the other, sing?

Can one really explain this?


Just as one can never learn how to paint.

~Pablo Picasso


Bird of paradise Strelitzia reginae

Bromeliad aechmea fasciata



Pink and Crimson Mandevilla vine


Screw Pine Pandanus

Beautiful Bird of Paradise flower...only nature could have blended those colours so well.
Loved the pink mandevilla as well.
The pink, red and white mandevillas grow slowly here, but the yellow one has to be trimmed every minute.

I like the last picture of the tiny frog, Joe on the croton leaf. It look so cute and coy.

Beautiful and exotic...It would be hard not to get inspired by these. Love Joe, he looks peaceful and comfy on his leaf.
