Wordless Wednesday: Life and Death

Wordless Wednesday: Life and Death


More Wordless Wednesday

I took this picture of a blooming flower from a plant I have outside my home about two months ago. My mother is the one who is keeping it and I have no idea the name of the plant. For almost 4 years I have never seen any flowers blooming from it. However, about two months ago, it surprised me with this beautiful flower. I just have to take a shot of it with my Sony Cyber-shot camera phone. Yes, this camera phone can produce some decent shots.

There may be question in your head, “Why ‘Life and Death’ in the title?” When I was taking shots of the flower, I noticed a green bud next to it; promising yet another beautiful bloom – another life. One life was moving towards the end and the other was just coming into life. Is it ‘Life beginning at the ending of another’ or is it ‘Life ending at the beginning of another?’

Like ‘Chicken or Egg?’ Frankly, does it really matter whichever come first. Most importantly was that the flower bloomed beautifully for when it was time for it to bloom. Such is the work of nature, to keep the cycle going. The plant does not question what nature has for it. Until the next bloom, the cycle continues everywhere around us, everyday, every hour, every minute and every second.

    Wonderful photo, BK! And sentiments I quite agree with too. It doesn’t really matter what comes first in nature… Things are what they are and we only have this moment to be with them, enjoy them, appreciate them, learn from them, so fleeting…before they are gone. Happy Day ((HUGS))

    Beautiful color in the blossom and a nice contrast to the green leaves.

    You pose some interesting thoughts. I much prefer the life beginning at the ending of another which, to me, conveys hope and faith.

    As for your comment –
    “Most importantly was that the flower bloomed beautifully for when it was time for it to bloom. Such is the work of nature, to keep the cycle going.

    Thank you for your visit to my blog and for leaving your comment.

    Wishing you a wonderful day.

      @ Betherann, Thank you.

      @ Hilary, frankly I have no idea what is this plant at all and I am hopeful that someone can enlighten me. :) Nature has its own way of keeping things going.

      @ Preeti, thank you for the visit too.

      @ Tracy, indeed, we only have this moment to be with them. :)

      @ Carver, thank you. It is actually quite a small flower; just that I took the picture quite close to it.

      @ Tarasview, thank you.

      @ Jacqueline, I have no idea what it is. Hopefully someone will enlighten me. :)

      @ Lindy, indeed, “…we should trust we are where we are supposed to be in life at ‘every hour, minute, second.'” Thank you for your visit and have a wonderful day too.

      @ Jayayceeblog, I love flowers too. :)

      @ Secret Mom Thoughts, Mel, Mumsy, thank you.

      @ Caite, can’t promise on that, I’ll try. :)

      @ Evan, indeed, the beauty of nature. :)

      @ Amy, yes, advance of technology. :)

      @ Angelia, indeed, “Every ending is a new beginning.” We must be thankful for that. Camera phone has indeed come a long way. 😀

      @ Self Sagacity, Sony Cyber shot camera is pretty reliable. I used to have one too but decided to sell it since my brother has a Canon digital camera at home too and it kind of wasteful. I am lucky indeed to have such beautiful flowers just outside my house. However, it did not have any flowers before for about 4 years and doesn’t seem to be having any in the near future. :)

      @ Meleah, yes, the camera phone does has it good use, acting as a camera besides making and taking calls. :)

      @ Linda, yes, the unknown that adds to the mystery and wonder.

      @ Jackie, thank you.

      @ Rachael, sorry to hear about your husband’s grandma. I believe that she will always be fondly remembered by the one she loved. And yes, her legacy will be continued by the little great grandchildren.

    I am not sure what kind of flower it is – but it is very beautiful. That’s great your mother kept it all these years, and now has the reward of some nice flowers. :)

      @ Sue, indeed. All these years I don’t even know that it can give such beautiful flowers. It is such a beautiful surprise.

      @ Carol, thank you. Phone can certainly do wonder these days.

      @ Amanda, I certainly love surprise like this. :)

      @ Mark, very true; the journey is never ending.

      @ Meleah, :)

      @ Belinda, thank you.

      @ Jude, indeed, it was a pleasant surprise. I didn’t even know the plant can produce flower. :)

      @ Life Ramblings, pardon me, my mother really only water it everyday and changed its soil once. But I guess even watering it everyday is also a sign of love and care. The plant itself is pretty sturdy.

      @ Will, one of my friends thought it was a Hibiscus too. However, from my previous observation of Hibiscus, it is a much bigger flower than this. This flower on the other hand is much smaller compared to the Hibiscus. You are right that for the past 4 years it has not bloomed at all until recently.

      @ Laura, thank you for dropping by.
