Like wildflowers; You must allow yourself to grow in all the places people thought you never would.
There’s not only the sweeping view of the mountains to enjoy, but also the different species of flora along the trails. I take pleasure in stopping by and taking snaps of the lovely flowers and odd-shaped plants. Even sometimes when I walk down the streets, some do bring lovely memories.
Here’s my photo collection:
The balloon plant are green hairy ball flowers, a popular ornamental plant for florist . They are a food plant for caterpillars. Reminds me of the butete, just saying.

I see love everywhere, along the trails or down the streets or up the skies. Poetry in Nature.
There is a garden of cucumbers under the sea! But look who’s watching over them. Sea cucumbers are marine animals btw.
