Lost

Lost

The other day, during one of those wanderings in the woods, I came across this mossy rock. A rock lost in the woods! Thousands of years back… might be millions, when the earth was different here…it had been here. A silent constant in a noisy ever-changing world… Now, it rests in the lonely shade, waiting for decades to pass … centuries to pass…

My Neighbor’s Paradise

My Neighbor’s Paradise

One of my neighbors…is a colorful old man. His first love is flowers, second is flowers… and i guess his ‘old lady’ comes third! Over several decades of his stay in the villa, he have grown a garden… to be precise, one should call it a botanical garden.

This is the Bird of Paradise Flower (Strelitzia) from the old man’s paradise.
A native of South Africa, Strelitzia is commonly known as the Crane Flower.
