The changes in nature as a holy way…

Autumn has arrived as of today and with it the amazing wonders of changes in nature begin.

The red lantern flower or also called Chinese Lantern flower, the Latin name is Physalis  Alkekengi , presents one of the beautiful changes.

It is also a popular ornamental plant

From the beautiful lantern it eventually changes to a precious , like a spider web looking plant.

Until the entire plant turns into a seed. In Japan it’s seeds are used as part of the Bon Festival ( a major holiday being celebrated) as offerings to guide the souls of the deceased.

I like to finish those wonders of nature with a quote of the famous photographer Diane Arbus ” I really believe there are things nobody would see if I didn’t photograph them” , well I won’t take credit for that , so I am adding”if they wouldn’t be captured”.

Enjoy the beauty of the change of nature in all it’s abundance.

The language of flowers…. Dahlias

The Zen Moment of a flower.

In the language of flowers, Dahlias represent “dignity and stability , as well as meaning the gratitude exceeds your care”.

Lotus Flower Leaves

I have posted before about the Lotus Flower, a plant starting to grow in muddy water and eventually emerging into a beautiful blooming flower. Which is a significant symbol especially in Buddhism.

Today I want to introduce the beauty of the leaves of the Lotus Flower.

The Lotus flower leaves are just as amazing as their blooming. Little water droplets on their leaves pick up dirt particles ..

Bella Donna is named in Italian as ” Beautiful lady”.

Bella Donna has been used in herbal medicine for centuries as a pain reliever,  muscle relaxer and for inflammation.
