:) Love to Nature

Nature is a petrified magic city. Novalis

Nature’s wonderful garden in display
display of autumn colours in array
array of beauty to share in delight
delight of birds in a picturesque sight.
Sight of swans as they fly above the ground
ground that is covered by leafs as if gowned
gowned by a blanket of colourful hue
hue of earth moistened by a misty dew.
Dew that reflects sunlights shimmering light
light that wakes up into a morning bright
Bright is the dawn as a new day ascends
ascends to where the earth and heaven blends.
Nature and seasons in a divine bliss
bliss of life and beauty to reminisce.

A plant crochet "Passion Purple".

Growing purple passion houseplants (Gynura aurantiaca) offers an unusual
and attractive houseplant for the brightly lit indoor area. The young purple passion plant has velvety leaves; thick, deep purple hairs on a green colored leaf and a cascading habit, making it perfect for an inside hanging basket. Purple passion houseplants have been used for indoor decoration for more than 200 years and grow wild in some southern areas. Purple passion plant stands out from other houseplants because its green leaves are covered in soft purple hairs, giving the plant a purple sheen (and it's the source of the plant's other common name: velvet plant). Purple passion plant has an upright habit when it's young, but becomes more spreading and almost vine-like as it matures. This makes it fun in hanging baskets, as well as trained up small trellises.
