After going through my last few posts and rereading them, I thought about how despite all the melancholy I expressed in writing I did not give adequate acknowledgment to recent happy experiences. When life gets hard, it’s hard not to unconsciously slip into a funk. I forget to take time to slow down and ground…… Continue reading Oh Happy Times
It’s the last day of 2018. I am excited and scared of being present for another 365 days done and over with, and of the anticipation of all the happiness and pain that may follow into 2019. I feel lost every year. I don’t know if I am as aimless as I was at the…… Continue reading Last Hooray of 2018
My 4th of July didn’t go as expected. Life can change so easily in a blink of an eye. I was so sure in my last post that things would go accordingly as I was picturing they would. How many times have I been here before, with my inaccurate fortune telling? I should know better…… Continue reading Happy Belated 4th
Yesterday was a fantastic humid day for walking along the seaside. Good thing I didn’t wear flip-flops as I am prone to do during summer-ish weather. I needed my sneakers for how far I went (I walked for two hours with small breaks in-between), and flip-flops would’ve definitely put a serious strain on my feet…… Continue reading Strolling by the Sea
I took a walk at another park not intending to take any pictures, but I couldn’t resist passing up on these two flowers, even though it was amazingly hot outside. 😧

Some areas were more crowded than others and this made it was tricky to try to take good phones. I’m also not a good…… Continue reading Flower Show!
It’s finally April and many plants are just starting to poke through the top of the soil with new shoots. I was not expecting to see any flowers yet but did find some early surprises. Also, a random fun fact about pussy willow branches are they’re used as decoration for the Lunar New Year celebration…… Continue reading Backyard surprises
I was just exploring a new park. Not really much green yet, but there are signs of life. 😃 I might upload more photos later.
Nature is what I need today. This is a photo of a yellow tree peony in full bloom from last summer. I’m surprised I never shared it, I remember being wowed by it. Coincidentally, the last flower photo I shared on my blog was also yellow. I swear that wasn’t on purpose, lol. I hope…… Continue reading Yellow tinted queen
This is a flower head from one of my mini phalaenopsis orchids. I would have liked it to stay on its branch but the plant took a tumble from the table a few days earlier and unfortunately a flower snapped off. 😢 I wanted to take a snapshot to commemorate its beauty before it wilted…… Continue reading Orchid head
