Natural Monday: Water Hyacinth Flower

Hallo ๐Ÿ™‚ 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, theย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚


Natural Monday: Yellow Rose

The last Monday of November and i’m a little nostalgic already, I’ve been wanting to post these but no suitable quote. This quote seems perfect for a nostalgic me and a dying rose.
Have a great week ahead ๐Ÿ™‚ .

โ€œIt was June, and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside.โ€

WPC: Tiny Beauties

Beauty comes in all sizes and shapes, cause you can’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Sometimes its nice to look a bit closer to the ground and appreciated the smaller things that are just out of sight.
This week I peeked closer at the millions of wispy wild flowers that make fields. they may be tiny but oh they are pretty ๐Ÿ™‚ in their own fleeting way.

Natural Monday: BW Blush

Morning guys, how was your weekend? ….i’m not gonna complain it was short cause well it’s never as long as i wished it could be *moppy face*.
I digress….So onto the post for today.
It’s all about Pink Bougainvilleas in a selective monochrome feel, i felt the pink would go unappreciated if left against the green-yellow leaves so i muted all colours but the flower blooms and i quite like the result ๐Ÿ™‚ . Do you feel it’s better this way or it should be left unaltered? Let me know in the comments.

Have a Great Week Ahead ๐Ÿ™‚


Natural Monday: A First of Many

Hello guys, and welcome to a new month, the Eight (8) month to be precise. Some say the number 8 stands for beauty and a new beginning. To that end i wish you a new beginning in the year no matter what the past months have been.
. . . And to kick off the new month a shot from my latest set. Pink Bougainvilleas in the shades of sunset.

Last Natural Monday of 2015: Blooms and Wasps


Merry Christmas In Arrears.

*And i hit the 500 WordPress Followers Mark last week ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ *

Now that I’ve duly said my Seasons Greetings ๐Ÿ˜€ , how is the Last Monday of 2015 faring for you?
Right now everyone is a in a furious rush to tidy up this outgoing year, buy any last minute gifts and hampers for the New Year. I, myself have been less than prepared with my blog as I’ve actually not had a post since last upper week Friday.
*lots of things happening in the background, my sincerest apologies*

Today i’ll be sharing my last flower images for 2015 and hopefully next week i’ll forage through my stats and post my most popular images on my blog for 2015. ๐Ÿ˜€
