Botanic Adventure



The cicada chorus reminds me I am a long way from where used to call home

The stickiness of the atmosphere envelopes

In the shade, the breeze is cooling and pleasant

Yet Exposed you are only seconds before the onset of sunburn

The tranquility of a fountain dims the senses but only temporarily




As a wasp makes love to pollen laden flora

Labels deliver names in Latin

IMG_1059That sound almost as exotic as the intertwined rouges and greens themselves depict

Perfect watercolors crafted by the very hand of God




IMG_1061In the midst of a sea of orange

A lone pink warrior stands defiant

Nature perfecting that which man tried to craft







IMG_1066Low slung jungle, what secrets to you hold?

Do you shelter venomous monsters?

Or simply shelter the dirt?






Sublimely crafted death trap stands guard over a miniature recreation of true jungle survival

Be careful of shark infested waters

One slip will surely return permanent dismemberment



As always, a brief visit to this urban oasis results in hot feet, a warmed soul and an invigorated imagination

May you enjoy your lunch hours this much 🙂
