it's only natural
Hello everyone! It's Monday and another thrilling week begins. Who knows what will happen globally and personally? I know I'll be going to Singapore for the festival in a couple of days. How about you? For those of you who have the joy of the seasons, Summer is ending and the leaves will soon turn russet and gold. For me, it's a most remarkable time watching nature age yet again. To contemplate and wonder the strength of Gaia that we have the nerve to mess up. She will one day spread her roots to rejuvenate when we are dead and gone. And the seasons keep changing. Those of us in the tropics sit in air-conditioned rooms oblivious to it all. The image in my head is straight out of a Manga/Anime movie.
This is a picture taken in my garden (again) and it's from the Jambu Air tree. Don't ask what it is in English. I've asked everyone I know. Nobody knows. This is the flower that eventually turns into a fruit. No such luck in my garden. The birds and the bees get to them before they have that chance. But knowing the creatures, they go off and pollinate elsewhere. Which means there's more growing somewhere. You see, Gaia. Don't mess with the b***h!
