HAPPY EASTER 2008!

Easter greeting card with Red Dwarf Crown of Thorns (Euphorbia milii), from our gardenJust felt that the image of the Dwarf Crown of Thorns (Euphorbia milii) growing in our garden most appropriate for an Easter greeting card. :)

Besides, offering a connection to Good Friday (where Jesus wore a crown of thorns during His crucifixion), I find the tiny buds, the vibrant green and red, perfectly depicting new life to be experienced with our Resurrected Lord!

Flesh Fly (Sarcophaga spp.) is quite a beauty!

Sarcophaga spp. (Flesh Fly) –

Flesh Fly (Sarcophaga spp.)What a gorgeous insect this fly can appear to be!

It flew right into our courtyard and landed with ease on the leaf of Dieffenbachia Amoena ‘Tropic Snow’ as I was checking for mealy bugs that are rampant on some of our foliage plants. How wonderful to be able to capture some images of it before it flew away.

Hadn’t known that flies can look so attractive! :D

Trithemis aurora (Crimson or Dawn Downwing)Wow! I just couldn’t believe my eyes! What amazing colors this captivating dragonfly displayed! I am so delighted that it stayed almost still for about 20 minutes on the Crossandra undulifolia flowering spike. Haha, long enough for me to get over the initial fumbling with my point and shoot camera (Canon PowerShot A60) which usually happens when I am excited, and then steadied to capture 11 reasonably good shots. Oooh…I am so happy, in seventh heaven so to speak! :D

How Great Thou Art, O God!

The Light of Jesus Christ shines perpetually for all mankindToday is Passion Sunday or Palm Sunday. During the Eucharistic Celebration Mass, a visiting Priest to our parish called us, children of God, to focus on Jesus as we begin the Holy Week, leading to Holy Thursday and Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday.

And, as I ponder on Christ’s Passion on the cross and God’s all-consuming love and mercy for His creatures in His salvation plan to unite us to Him, His outpouring bounty and splendorous creation, etc. and etc., my heart just wants to sing aloud this wonderful hymn of praise and worship – :D
