Hello Spring!

Wake up, sleepy world!

the icicles melt

hibernating roots bloom hues

spring arrives charmingly

in her flowery chariot

beckoning us to wake up

This was my first ever tanka, so kindly forgive me if I was wrong anywhere 😛 😉 And if you don’t believe that spring has arrived, then here is the proof !

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY !!!

Don’t be shocked! I posted a yellow rose on purpose. This is because I feel that a couple can never be successful if they are not each others’ friends. Right?? So, here is a tribute to friendship on this valentine’s day –

The language of the eyes and silence can only be understood by the one who knows the heart’s language.

And who can do that better than a friend? Happy friendship day ! Happy valentines day !

VIBRANT

Daily post challenge – Vibrant

 

 

As soon I saw the title of this week’s Dailypost challenge, I was reminded of my earlier post –

Here’s a sample :

Of course, what can be more vibrant and energetic than the colour RED ??!!

Callistemon !!

Yes, that’s a new flower in my apartments, but no, I did not know the name before clicking it 😛

When I saw this really strange yet pretty flower,

I googled this – “red spiky flower” and I discovered that this called callistemon and is popularly known as bottlebrush because….well, I guess the reason is visible !

And then the photographer in me who had been temporarily sleeping due to my upcoming exams woke up suddenly seeing this beautiful sight, and I started clicking.

So here are some pictures of the “bottlebrush” flower at different stages of its life
