FINDING MY WAY

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – November 30,2016

Life is all about choices and finding your way to your destination. I particularly enjoy playing up for this photo challenge run by Cee because it gives me freedom to click anything which depicts a ‘way’…. it can be a walkway, road, footpath, trail, stairs or even I can capture while climbing, driving or driving. Isn’t it fun?

I was away from these fun challenges for a while, hopefully should be able to tag along and contribute by bit. These are my choices for this week.img_2797img_2889img_2902IMG_0729

Flower of the day: Crown of Thorns

Day before yesterday Judy shared her crown of thorns in bright red color that was the time I was reminded of my cluster of flowers which I cooly ignored while clicking and sharing the new flowers in my garden. Probably they are not as bright as they were two months before. The dark pink color is faded now because of harsh sunlight.  Still they are worth sharing, right? 

Flower of the day:  Crown of thorns

Flower of the day: Moss Rose/ Portulaca oleracea 

Portulaca Oleracea or Moss rose or Pig weed is an excellent garden filler and now a days it is in full bloom because of bright sun. My garden flower beds are looking  pink as I casually dropped this carpet plant, a month ago to fill the edges. Plant is meant for full sun and hot dry areas. It’s stems are soft and fleshy, often reddish colored. Narrow fleshy leaves are covered by single or multi layered flowers, remebles rose. 

They are wide open in sun but not on cloudy days. Newer varieties may open in overcast conditions. Tolerates heat and drought; best in poor soil. Self-seeds unless soil is worked. Use for edging, ground covers, hanging baskets, planters and rock gardens.

Flower of the day 18.5.2016 Helianthus maximiliani

This looks like a species of Sun flower family.  Another pretty yellow flower from my garden smiled at me this morning. 

I was not very sure about the name so searched  on google to find out and according to me maximilliani,  a sunflower, native of North America was the closest bet. Hope I am right. we call it baby Sunflower 😊😊

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: What’s this? 

Guess What’s this? 

I am sure we are going to have lots of fun here. Without wasting time I am posting these pictures for you all to guess to identify the object. You never know I will be the first one to start the series! You have to identify the objects captured in the photos and this way we can have more interaction than usual.  Looking forward to your guesses and  you can wait for correct answers.
