Thought for the weekend

Nature is not a place to visit.
It is our home.

Seward, Alaska - Whale watching

So I am meandering through Myrtle Glen, and I keep hearing the coaxing cheep-cheep (or peep-peep?) of the Red Cardinals. I know their kids are out and about, and since they are known to be curious and not at all shy, I keep looking around to find them.

Purple hues

This bromeliad is one of the larger ones in my collection, Neoregelia concentrica cv Bullis.




And the tiny flowers forming a circle in the center, that is it, those are its flowers. It is not the flowers but the leaves with the glowing purple color what makes this bromeliad so stunning.
