The Donkey’s tail plant:

Scientific Name: Sedum Morganianum-succulent family

The donkey’s tail succulent (Sedum Morganianum) is a popular and easy-to-grow trailing succulent with rows of fleshy, tear-drop shaped leaves. This plant is also commonly known as lamb’s tail, burro’s tail, or horse’s tail. Some other closely related Sedum varieties may also be known by any of these names. These succulents make excellent hanging plants or they can be used as trailers (a plant with only one root that creeps along the surface) in small pots.

Growing burro’s tail provides fascinating texture as a graceful houseplant or lush green exterior plant in many landscape situations.

A mature specimen might have branches up to 2 feet (60 cm) long, with dozens of grey-green, plump leaves lined up like droplets. Flowers readily emerge in late summer in hanging clusters of small blossoms in red, yellow or white.

In Praise of a fallen Flower: Sea Hibiscus

Sea Hibiscus flower series:

Fallen Flowers remind us of the natural birth/growth/death cycle. It’s hard to believe that nature can pack beautiful shades of colors into one lone Flower; it was hard to pass by without capturing your beauty. So delightful when alive up on the tree fully bloomed, don’t know how many took notice of you and appreciated the nature but the end will be so tragic that you are bound to be crushed by moving vehicles. You accomplished your life mission so here I am to honour you.

Snail on Leaf:

Close up of snail on leaf image spotted at my back yard. We all come across these and many other creatures but a very few make use of converting these casual small critters into a good photographic subject. Sensing the danger due to movements and distractions caused by me it retracted its body into the shell and I had to wait for a few minutes to make its way and move so that I could capture the whole body and the movement. At last snail won the race as I ran out of time and patience and be contented with the one what I captured. Lesson learnt is “Patience pays”.
