The earth is what we all have in common. Wendell Berry
I love this yellow hibiscus flower which opened up fully for the first time this morning in mum’s garden. It’s a small plant, in a pot, and has just this one flower (so far).
I think it’s so beautiful, I’ve declared today Happy Hibiscus Day!
I’m reminded that without earth many things just wouldn’t grow. Earth is also a myriad of colours and textures – one minute earthy brown mud, the next red sandy soil. Just like people really – we’re all different colours but we all need stability, good grounding, roots (family), water, fertilizer, earth, sunshine and love, so that we too can blossom like this lovely yellow hibiscus flower. Without earth where would we be?
I also love the imagery of Earth, Wind and Fire – so here are some of my images….
This week’s photo challenge gives us all the opportunity to “share an image that means “earth” to you — whether it’s a panorama of a landscape that takes your breath away, a close-up revealing a detail in nature, or another scene that honors the outdoors… Just in time to celebrate Earth Day on 22 April!
Thank you earth for all your gifts!
