Cee’s Flower of the Day

Oleander buds for Cee’s FOTD:

Oleanders grow best in full sun and will tolerate even reflected heat from a south or west wall. They will tolerate partial shade.

Many thanks for Cee’s FOTD. A great blog site to appreciate flowers everyday.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #102: A Quiet Moment

This week, Patti invites us to capture “A Quiet Moment.

In the quiet moments, the discoveries are made.

These days, I spend some quiet moments in our backyard, especially in the early morning. The other day, I happily discovered a few buds of the tomato plant.


Forget things and have a quiet moment.

Watching the these plants to grow day after day, I often forget this troubling time.

“Live quietly in the moment and see the beauty of all before you. The future will take care of itself……”

― Yogananda

Tomatoes are long-growing, heat-seeking, sun lovers. We had some rain in April and May, and have had lots of sun in June. We hope to harvest tomatoes in the fall.

I take time to appreciate the beauty and details of these flowers and enjoy the quiet moment.

“During these past few months while the pandemic has raged around the world, many of us have rediscovered the value (and necessity) of finding quiet moments during the day to reflect and recharge.” Take a look of Patti’s special quiet moments in various beautiful cities.

We hope you join us this week. Include a link of Patti’s post and use the“Lens-Artists” tag so we can find your post in the WP Reader.

Stay tuned for Ann-Christine’s LAPC #103 on June 27.
