To start the weekend, I share two pictures that illustrate well local nature. I saw this post by my Japanese friend Yurys. She photographed lotus in blooms at the Ueno Park in Tokyo. The view of that garden is absolutely stunning.
The yellow flowers from my garden seems pale compared to the lotus flowers but they represent our wildlife. These delicate looking perennial flowers are most resistant than they look. I put them on a planter last year. They bloomed again from my pot; I did not do anything to them last fall or this spring. The only thing was that the planter was always under the sun. As a bonus, the seeds fall from our balcony and we now have a row of yellow flowers next to the house. I could not tell you their name.
