Summer powers este flowers pala

sunflower

Sunflowers attract bees without the effort. I wonder why.

blues

I don't know what these bunch of flowers are called but I call them the blues.

firetree

These are blooms from the fire tree. The only reason I like the month of May is because the fire trees start to fire up with its deep orange flowers.


goldenshower

Another favorite, the golden shower. They come around during the month of May as well.

May 14 is Election Day. Stop whining. First, excercise your right to vote.

Yeah, ya' don't have to be a Botanist to figure out why bees are attracted to sunflowers, everyone knows it's the happy hour at the nectar bar!
I love watching sunflowers in the summer, cause I get up early I sit outside and watch the neighbors sunflowers wake and search for the morning sun and track it across the sky.
The flowers of the Fire tree look absolutely stunning and vibrant, it's easy to see where the name comes from. A lovely array of spring come summer colours Rayts. Enough colour to fill the soul with energy.

I think I recognize those blues though I don't know what they're called. I used to pick them from my Lola's garden. They've got small sticky stems which you could stick to your clothes. :) Great pictures, as usual, Rayts. And I totally agree with you on your last sentence.

peter,
we discover new things everyday. some of them truly surprise us, so the least we could do, is to be surprsed ouselves ;)

ndiginiz,
but sunflowers are naturally pollinator grabber! but you're right, it wouldn't take a botanist to know that, hehe. i'll feature fire trees soon...that and the autumn colors in Manila. ;)

tien,
you're right. i mean, everybody's posting flowers...

toe,
tama ka, may dagta nga siya pagpinipitas. napakarami nito sa UP Diliman, sa harap ng bahay ng Alumni, kala ko sa LB lang marami nito.
