não param de me surpreender - never stop surprising me



já sabem que ando sempre à volta do jardím mas, por mais que olhe, há sempre alguma coisa que me escapa!

ainda à uns dias estava eu a lamuriar-me que nunca conseguía ter tulipas na varanda, nasciam mas a flor nunca chegava a abrir, que a varanda era demasiado quente para eles, etc etc...

já estava a ver as deste ano a ir pelo mesmo triste caminho, e de repente encontro esta já com a flor aberta mesmo por cima do sofá! nem tinha reparado que era uma tulipa e muito menos que já tinha o botão formado... deve ser por ser vermelho-sangue que não contrasta o suficiente com o verde ;P ainda por cima andei a tirar, recentemente, fotografias aos jacintos e não vi nada!


eu até vejo bastante bem, mas às vezes pareço mesmo uma toupeira das profundezas, dessas mesmo, que nunca vêm à superfície...

You already know that I'm always walking around the garden but, for more searches i do, there is always something that escapes me!
even on the past few days I was whining to myself that I would never have tulips in the balcony, that the flowers would rise a little but never openig, the balcony was too hot for them, etc etc ...
I was seeing the same happening this year, going the same sad path, havening not noticed this tulip until i drop over it, much less that it had already formed the button... should be because the red-blood color isn't enough contrasting with the surrouding green ;P and even recently I was taking pictures of, in the same pot, hyacinths and not seen anything!
in fact I actually see very well, but sometimes I look like a deepness mole, one of those which never comes to the surface...

First of all, I want to say thank you for visiting me today! I will very much enjoy visiting you, too!

Isn't it amazing that we can nearly stumble over something right in front of our eyes without really seeing it? Your tulip is beautiful. For that matter, you have a wonderful collection of flowers! :-)
