hello, nature

Bird of Paradise
Little Blue Heron

There is a resemblance, yes?
Also, the heron's beak is iridescent.



The delicate, effusive bougainvillea. 


Palmetto patterns, spikes, fronds.

All found in Florida. 

 It (nature...glorious... infinite...) makes me giddy.

  1. Your beautiful pictures remind me of my trip for southern area, Okinawa. Bird of Paradise looks really some bird in the heaven. Good naming, isn't it?

  2. Hello Jen, I was always impressed with the tropical beauty of Florida when I went there, but somehow the northern temperate regions are more ingrained in me. Winters, however, were very easy to give up.

  3. I was so excited to see the bird of paradise plants. I missed out on bouganville though and the warm.

    Next time let's go visit Helen Tilston!

    1. It was windy and chilly my first day--not what I expect from FL. Yes to Helen! And maybe some good Cuban food and music...

    1. I love the way the little white flower lives inside the showy, colorful leaves.

  5. Aaaahhh more bougainvillea and the bird of paradise does look the blue heron. Hmm, who's imitating who? Anytime you want good Cuban food and music just drop by, it's the norm around here.
