According to Greek mythology, winged creatures or women lured sailors onto rocks with siren calls. I photographed this luscious green pond at Selby Orchid Gardens in Sarasota, Florida.

A sun-shiny day is a perfect way to photograph my bougainvillea bush. It’s a Spring bounty of colorful reddish pinks. In a vase on my table or in my kitchen, they scream rebirth.

While walking through my local park, I came upon this cactus. I was fascinated by the fan shaped leaves. The colorful edges seem to be beckoning the hot weather that can’t be far behind our beautiful Spring.

Selby Orchid Gardens in Sarasota, Florida has a yearly Mother’s Day luncheon and concert we began attending annually. With children and grandchildren living at a distance, it was a welcomed event to celebrate with other mothers. Last year, it was canceled. I hope they have it this year.

The unfolding of new dendrobium orchids is fascinating to watch each day. In the Spring, I have many blossoms blooming. It’s a feast for the eyes.

Several years ago, I was blessed with an explosion of orchid flowers. It was a stunning display. I wish I could have this magical dance of flowers every year. I enjoyed every minute of every flower of every color and shape. The white orchid with the pink center died shortly after Hurricane Irma went through our town. The powerful winds and overabundance of water were more than they could handle. As in life, death is a part of the rebirth planting season.
Garden Wall 2021©Isadora De La Vega
I photographed this clever idea of a garden wall while vacationing in Cartagena, Columbia. The monks at this church grow their own herbs and flowers. They decorate the church with their floral cutting. They use the herbs in their daily meals.
of every tomorrow
is a seed well planted
On a Winter’s day
Then, earth awakens.
The wonder of another season
bringing colorful flowers
For Spring’s debut.
