119



Ixoras - hardy, hearty blooms; in reds, yellows, oranges and pinks to dismiss every gloom; they decorate my garden; they love the rain; more and more pop up, in the splendor of a sunny day after it rains; like tiny umbrellas they cluster together, bunches to delight every admirer. So i pick some, bringing delight to my table.

and i arrange them
with a snip of my scissors -
ixora pom poms

  5. Beautiful flowers (reminds me of hydrangea a little though investigation says not related). Love your description "like tiny umbrellas they cluster together" Very nice haibun

    1. The way I have packed 3 bunches so closely together, gives them that look of hydrangea, yes, but the petals of the hydrangea are wider and rounder.
