Natural Monday: Water Hyacinth Flower

Hallo 🙂 and a wonderful Monday to you. It’s a new week, new deadlines and the whole nine yards.
Sooooooo, let’s dig right into the shots of the day. Today for my Natural Monday Focus it’s the humble yet annoying Water Hyacinth. In Lagos, the Water Hyacinth isn’t liked cause of its rapid breeding along the water ways which clog up water edges and hold refuse and dirt. It also gives the water surface a patchy look which is very ugly *blehhh*.

Here comes the only nice part of this plant, its flower. This lovely and delicate (It’s really fragile and bruises easily) flower with its lilac to blue-purple petals is in my opinion the only reason i tolerate this messy water plant. Blotting out the mass of green leaves and looking only at the flower, the colours are cool and soothing and a great subject to start a new week/ new month.

*Oh yes the Month of Love is around the corner, time to get the baff bag ready for the fluorescent pinks and red soon to take over* LOL

How are you spending your Monday? and whats planned for the RED Month 🙂
