As the moon rises from the east and fulfils the night, so does God fulfil His promise.
Jesus has risen, Alleluia!
Happy Easter, everyone!
“The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day.
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You’re one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
a cloud come over the sunlit arch,
And wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you’re two months back in the middle of March.”
Flowers are the music of the ground.
From earth’s lips, spoken without sound.

I was busy taking pictures of Freesia flowers when I saw one big bee was flying around from one flower to another one. I am not quite sure whether this bee is sort of Western honey bee (European honey bee).
Finally she landed on one flower for collecting nectar. I was observing her whilst standing still nearby. I then decided to approach her closely.
“Hello there. What are you doing?” I whispered to the bee.
I squatted down and observed still.
I decided to leave her on her own for a while and took some pictures of the flowers around without giving too much noise. I just didn’t want to disturb her.
Then I came back to check her…
When I was enjoying her sleeping then she started to move and all of sudden I saw her stood up right in front of me!
It was the first day in March 2012. Welcome to the spring!

Hi, beautiful! What is your name? Is it Bird cherry?
I’ve been browsing on internet in order to find out the name of this flower. I ended up on a website called The Flower Expert and under ‘types of flowers’ tab and ‘wild flowers’ category, I found a similar look like this flower called Bird cherry or Prunus padus in Latin.
I remember one time when I was trying to eat its fruit back few months ago. I was so curious at the time. Unfortunately it tasted so bitter as it is said on that article. So don’t try this at home!
I still am not so sure yet whether I am right about this flower. But despite its confusing name or genus, I hope that everybody enjoys the pictures.

“Life after death”, that is my description of spring. It is just wonderful to see the tiny little foliage come out from the branches marking that the spring is here! It is such a pleasant feeling to experience it.
I wish everybody is having a good and warm week ahead! 🙂

Freesia. Yes, this flower has wowed many friends of mine when I posted its picture on Facebook two days ago. Some of them asked me what that flower is called and whether they are a family of tulip. Unfortunately I couldn’t answer any of those question because I really didn’t know its name and family. I made a promise to find it out later at the supermarket since lots of plants seeds been selling due to the spring is coming. So I went to ASDA supermarket and finally found its seeds there and from now on I know what the flower is called! It is Freesia Crocus!
Soon after I came home I browsed on internet to find it out more about this flower.
This flower is a symbol of multiple sentiments such as friendship, innocence, thoughtfulness, perseverance and being high-spirited. Also this flower is one of the most fragrant flowers and so used in perfumes, bath oils, soaps, lotions, scented oil, etc.
The pattern of this flower is known as ‘zygomorphic‘.
This flower is a sign to me that spring is already under way!
