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.
What a gloomy feeling but these morning starters, Hibiscus Rosa Sinensis flowers will cheer me up. Since it’s a common flower around that we see it everyday and every time around the corner that its simply boring, the only way to be appreciated is to make the shots beautiful. I captured these flowers while doing my daily jogging at Capitol Commons, I was about to finish my last round but in between quick stop to snap the flower. That’s a bit distraction, Whew! It’s good I brought with me my iPhone, just a right time to snap also the bumble bees and the butterflies.
What a stunning poise! It was a good timing late in the afternoon, the black butterfly seems to be so tired that I could easily snap away. Here’s the result! Oh Joe! That’s an impressive beauty that caught my sight. It’s just a quick single shot before it change direction.
Another quick snapshot of Monarch butterfly done today. It appeared just after the rainfall and here it goes! The wings widely spread-out. Thanks God! it seems she’s showing the color pattern of her wings. The shiny black colorful 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.
Bearing a heavy crop of beautiful flowers in clusters sometimes, carrying many flowers on one stem alone, these flowering plants live in a dry climate however, manage to survive even during rainy season. This is a good example of plants that can easily adopt themselves to the climate and a good specimen for beautification.
Summer growth flowers are produced abundantly as shown here that’s why 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, one month after, it will give lushness of the surroundings.
I love flowering plants that prolongs the moment of glory. A pleasure to see daily, one graceful example is this one. Orange Gumamela with pink center ( Hibiscus flower ) is equally well in full bloom. The intense sunlight tends to stimulate flowering that brings brilliant natural colors.

I’ve always been curious about doing gardening around,I was even more interested in collecting and planting flowering plants in the backyard although our backyard garden is not so spacious. I’ve mixed the flowering plants, fruit trees and vegetables together as one. With too much effort to deal with it, I was much excited to see the result as photography plays a very important role to my morning pleasure.
Last summer, I bought some gardening materials and seeds before summering gardening started but many of our house plants kept indoors to control the light level but, light outdoors are never been great as outdoors. I’ve observed they seems to grow more slowly and need a special care.
It’s rainy season now, Some of our flowering plants drops most of its leaves and flowers turned yellow and very pale. Is it over watering? I really thought it would stay longer like a promising healthy plants I’ve seen around in garden parks. Different flowering plant needs different kind of care like watering, kind of soil and sunlight. Not to mention the night cool temperature and temperate level. That’s tough to handle, huh! I don’t really care,it’s my own and I was much inspired to see the fruit of my effort.
