November; Gems found in my garden;

Flowers, admire and lament their short beauty;  ©Ts 2013

The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers.  ~Basho

FLOWER-SALUTE. by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
THIS nosegay,--'twas I dress'd it,--

Greets thee a thousand times!
Oft stoop'd I, and caress'd it,

Ah! full a thousand times,
And 'gainst my bosom press'd it

A hundred thousand times!

Fungi garden.

'Tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes!
~William Wordsworth, "Lines Written in Early Spring," Lyrical Ballads, 1798

  I wished for nothing but a garden at sunrise to watch the flowers awaken. ©Ts 2013

Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty out values all the utilities of the world.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844

Flowers of the Cuban royal palm.

The fungi garden;

The flower offered of itself
And eloquently spoke
Of Gods
In languages of rainbows
And secret silence...
~Phillip Pulfrey, from Love, Abstraction and other Speculations,

Believe it or not:

Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.  ~Gerard de Nerval

  1. Einfach wundervolle Farben und Pflanzen, die du wieder zeigst liebe Titania. Und die Pilzlandschaften sind einmalig. So viele Wunder, die uns die Natur Tag für Tag schenkt, an uns ist es sie zu entdecken. Bei uns hat es zum ersten Mal geschneit diesen Herbst/Winter, und die Stadt ist seit gestern weihnachtlich beleuchtet.
    Hab eine gute Zeit!
    Liebe Grüsse

  2. I see your pretty zinnias now... they are so pretty!! I haven't planted zinnia for a long time now. It's about time to plant it again!! It is amazing how those fungi turn out to be so beautiful. You have a great environment for many things to flourish well. Love that orchid too. All your blooms are simply marvellous! Oh I feel so small now... hehe...

  3. That is a nice collection of fungus.
    Truly unique and some beautiful.
