Muntingia Calabura  blooming under full sun,the petals changes its position and lean to the light and flop over. It’s a small,and white star-like flower that has a crepe texture petals and golden yellow anther that attracted insects around. However, the sepal and stigma  is color green,so with the evergreen leaves. During hot season, the taste of the fruit is quiet sweet and juicy but during rainy days, it’s tasteless as it’s only good for the birds and honeybees.

Leaving temporarily my daily chores behind, I can’t neglect my morning hobby to at least capture one beautiful subject a day. Sunflowers attracted enormous attention from passers around and amid expectations from me that it would even be more better to see it in pictures. This is my expression to brighten up my day and after snapshots would be getting into blogs afterwards so this is it.

Miracle Garden of Dubai

January25

What a beautiful landscape! The beautiful garden paradise floating lavishly with beautiful flowers, I may call it, the ”Garden of Eden” or the ”Garden of new generation. Miracle Garden of Dubai is a beautiful flower garden, so far the largest floral sculpture located in Dubailand, Dubai, United Arab Emirates gained good reputation, it was a big hit and a special extravagant attraction approximately with over 45 million blooming flowers.

Periodically open to all visitors, locals,OFW and tourists made visits to this place, the garden was launched February 14, 2013, it was a good timing to celebrate Valentine’s day. I’m glad to see all the efforts of garden enthusiasts and landscape designers. Over the years, the growth and interest in gardening has been developed, the empty dessert and idle spaces that remain intact for years has been newly restored and renovated that gained good recognition as the present Guinness World Record holder for the ”Largest Vertical Garden.” What lies beyond the dessert? It was all dramatically turned into a beautiful paradise and the flower displays and arrangements occasionally changed every year.

To display the flowers devoted primarily to full blooms in appropriate landscape, framed filled by flower pots that formed animal pieces and objects which includes; Castle, Airbus 300, Swan Lake, Giant formed hearts and Pyramids to name a few. This kind of display technique is easy to replace the sections that are dried up. The spacious landscape is divided into different areas of  a good display.

The flower frame design that formed a pyramid is distinctive. Thanks for the effort and time to discover the new display of floral designs, it helps us to appreciate better the flowers of today.

Excellent blending of colors and detailed arrangement techniques for external expression.

Arch climber flowers, the range of colors to competent the season and paths are bordered by flower beds all matched the way of a gorgeous garden.

What  a surprise to see the lushness of flowers, some rare varieties especially the hybrids are still growing today.

All sections everywhere partly to show blending and striking of colors rightfully organized in a very competent manner.

Thanks God! it seems she’s showing the colour pattern of her wings. The shiny black colourful pattern, this is a bad warning to any predators as it is said to be poisonous! The position, you can easily identify what kind of butterfly is this.

Heavy Crop of Beautiful Flowers

October10

img_9959-copy

Bearing a heavy crop of beautiful flowers in clusters sometimes,carrying many flowers on one stem alone. A flowering plant that lives in a dry climate, however, manage to survive even during rainy season. One kind of plant that can easily adopt themselves to the climate.This is a good specimen for beautification. The sunny position I think  is very particular, summer growth flowers are produced abundantly as shown here.

I’m closing close track of the flowers thinking that when flowering ends, seeds are being released and ready to be collected. The next step is to dry the seeds for a week or two and plant them. Soon, one month after, check the result of your effort, the daily bloomers will give you the lushness of the surroundings.
