The blessings of Easter

Despite being the middle of summer here in the Philippines, it's been raining almost every afternoon these past two weeks. A happy result of this is that I've discovered more flowers blooming in our garden. Of course, like the other flowers I've posted before, I have no idea what their names are. But whatever they are, I think they're such wonderful blessings especially for this season.

Spiky. I'm just glad this is soft and small.

Red clusters. Tiny, tiny flowerets growing in clusters. The leaves are round, thick and waxy and remind me of jojoba somehow.

Pale lavender. Orchid, definitely an orchid. But what kind?

Spring skirt. It looks like a lady wearing one of those frilly skirts that seem to be in season this spring.

Happy Easter, everyone!
