Today's Flowers #38: Hieroglyphics of Angels

Saturday, May 02, 2009

MY APPRECIATION TO THE TODAY'S FLOWERS TEAM
LUIZ SANTILLI JR. - DENISE GULLICKSON
LAERTE PUPO - DENISE B. CASTRO

I feel very honored to be this week's Guest Friend.
Thank you all for the kind visits. Have a great week.

Flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words. They are the hieroglyphics of angels, loved by all men for the beauty of their character, though few can decipher even fragments of their meaning.
~Lydia M. Child

This is a tribute to my late aunt who suddenly passed away in March.
I took a lot of photos in her garden, not long after the funeral.
Looking at them makes me feel closer, whenever I miss her.





The following flowers belong to my blog photo archives.
A click on each of them will lead you to the related post.
The purple orchids also come from my aunt's garden.

Rosidah, your flowers are sooo beautiful, you capture every details.
I had an appointment in Dc a week ago, the Doc is one of the top doctors in Washington DC so I am hoping that he can help me fix this problem. I had an x-ray and a CT scan on my sinus/head, I am going to see him again this May. Thank you so much for asking, I appreciate it. I miss hearing from you and everybody. I hope you have a wonderful week ahead and happy Mothers day in advance.

I love that purple flower from your aunt's garden, it's so rare and I've never seen that before. Congratulations for being the host for today's flowers. Your aunt had a great collection in her garden. My mom used to have a beautiful garden too but unluckily I couldn't follow up on it coz I was so busy and then I just gave them to my agriculturist cousin, they would be better cared for with him. :)

Linnea W said...

So many lovely flowers with different textures, colors, and shapes. How nice to think of your beloved aunt when you see flowers!

Ann said...

That purple with white streaks rose is most unusual. i have been to many rose gardens in NZ, and have not seen one like this. Did you say that your aunty grew them. I hope some one is maintaining her garden now.

Thanks for commenting about the NZ Guava, Very Chantek, but not as delicious as the South East Asian ones.

Marie Reed said...

What a wonderful tribute to your very missed Aunt! Beautiful!

Jama said...

She must have a very beautiful garden! That 2 colour rose is very nice, I've seen a red and white rose here but not of that colour.

Regina said...
