It’s been raining since Monday prompting most schools and universities to declare “no classes” in most areas here in Metro Manila. The start of the week was marred by horrendous traffic, leaving so many flood prone areas in waist deep water. This is a perennial problem in our country every time the rainy season sets in.
This morning though, the sun bravely showed its face and look what I saw in the garden while emptying our small pond with rain water. I can’t resist taking a few shots (as always).
These are called rain lilies and they produce these tiny flowers during the rainy season. I planted some in a corner of our garden, the rest I put in a vase. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw these tiny blooms. They somehow erased the gloomy atmosphere of the morning.
This is my first Zinnia bloom this season. I planted them from dried flowers which our village gardener gave me a few months ago.
