Hoy cumple años mi joven amigo Fernando Felix y quiero dedicarle ésta foto porque el es un especialista en “ver” esos “otros mundos” e interpretarlos con gran creatividad y sentido del humor. Pero mejor que paséis por su galería para poder comprender a qué me refiero. ¡FELICIDADES, FERNANDO!
A mis amigas: estad atentas porque puede que continúe una interesante serie
que comenzó el año pasado ... ;-)

Last lights in my "Sun" garden
For convenience of maintenance and gardening, I divided my garden into two areas that I called, respectively, The Sun and The Moon, according to their position above the garden and seasonal movement in the sky.
Imagine zooming into this vibrant red composition! Ecstatic, isn't it!
So ecstatic in fact, that Hibiscus species represent nations: Hibiscus syriacus is the national flower of South Korea, and Hibiscus rosa-sinensis is the national flower of Malaysia. The red hibiscus is the flower of the Hindu goddess Kali, and appears frequently in depictions of her in the art of Bengal, India, often with the goddess and the flower merging in form. The hibiscus is used as an offering to goddess Kali and Lord Ganesha in Hindu worship.
And some varieties make delicious teas!

Sky was blue, bright sun was out and sometimes cloud covering it in a hurry. I was under this flower and it was moving on passing wind. Moment I shot it, sun broke out from the clouds, almost blinding me. However this flower came out perfectly in the middle without me needing any crop or alteration. Except may be the colour tone :”)

How much can one person love another?
A universe exists in time and space,
Placed within the boundaries of one place,
Pressed into a point far from forever.
Yet love comes to us from some quite other,
Visiting our sorrow with its grace,
Answering our rage with its embrace,
Lending us the wisdom of its wonder.
Even as I say this, you are there,
Nestling in where need undoes the day,
Taking up your small infinity.
Inside my window, you are everywhere,
Nor could I tell how much such love might weigh,
Even were it salient as the sea.
JUST FOR ALL LOVELY FRIENDS IN THE LOVE OCCASION:)
