It is the third and last day of a long weekend and as the entire nation took a break to commemorate the Philippines’ 114th Independence Day, I got bored. Its been a gloomy rainy day since I woke up, but I find it pretty amusing! I have practically read every blog that interests me, ate some of my favorite dishes courtesy of our beloved -house chef, Manang Nida, and prepared lessons for my French class good for the rest of the week.
What a fine day for photography, I thought!
So, I head out to the garden and started taking photos of the smallest things I can find.
I looked around and saw my newly acquired plant that I have not determined the name yet. The leaves look like those of an Acacia Tree.
Right in the corner is my Christmas Plant (photo below)
I zoomed my camera lens further out in the front yard and saw the purple “mille flores” or million flowers.
Though giant ferns aren’t small, I took a photo of it just the same 🙂
The rain stopped a little bit and my pet birds called finches chirps. They are small seed-eating songbirds, they’re on that blue cage in the photo below.
This finch was a show-off to the camera today.
Family of Finches, they’re shy to show-off, head shots will do.
Hairy Cactus trying not to get wet
Cadena De Amor in bloom despite the end of the summer season.
The tiny Medenilla’s are about to bloom.
Money plant flowers before they turn to tiny red fruits.
Kutsarita or ‘teaspoon’ flower. They are even smaller than teaspoons though.
Next photo shows a wild flower that grows in different colors and hues. It smells really good especially at night and the leaves are succulent. I just don’t know what it is called.
Violet Beauty (not its real name, I just call it such)
Even the tomatoes are tiny here.
Well, these one is not small, but they are worth a ‘shot’. Its blooming days are soon over 😦
Now, I’m no longer bored and dinner is served. I had a great time sharing you these photos, I hope you liked them.
