It's far too easy to miss seeing what's right in front of me. I get in a rush and totally miss the beautiful stuff right here on my farm. So I decided to walk about and take a few pictures. I'm glad that I did because otherwise I would have missed seeing some of these gems.
This coleus came up all by itself right in the middle of one of my taro patches. Being that it was so colorful I couldn't bring myself to pull it out. Now it's a jumbo plant.
Don't ask me how it did it, but this wee impatiens sprouted out the side of the rockwall by the house. How cute!
My mini rose bush started pushing new foliage and flower buds. The new leaves are lovely by themselves, being reddish and pale green. I usually fail to notice them, but today the bush is covered with the new leaves, making it look like its in bloom with weird flowers. Pretty neat.
I should have posted this photo first because this is this morning's sunrise. Stepping out the front door, I saw that the sky was growing lighter. Looking up through the driveway trees, it looked quite nice so I ran to get the camera. A beautiful way to start the day, wouldn't you agree?
There are lots of various flowers blooming right now. Gingers, orchids, anthuriums, and these fellas that I don't know the name of.
Passing by a young avocado tree, I couldn't help but notice how nice the fresh new shoots look against the older leaves. Soft, colorful, and shiny. We don't get the colorful autumn leaves here, but the new foliage is frequently colorful. Guess that helps make up for our lack of fall colors.
Every once in a while I have to remind myself to look....and really see....what's going on around me. Some of this stuff is really amazing.
