I can never see flowers too many times, I never get tired of their sweet fragrance. Each one is a delicate bloom, no matter if it is a formal garden or a waste land. Their petals are delicate works of art and their hues are medicine for my soul.

I guess it’s not just me that feels that way though, we bring these nature beauties into the hospitals and graveyards, we send them to express our love, we plant them in our yards though they bear no edible fruits.
SUCCULENT PLANT red bell
There is something about their beauty I need for my whole being, to be fully human, I wonder if we’re all a bit like that.
Without these wonderful blooming natural jewels it would only be concrete, and I think the drop in temperature would freeze my heart.
Sakura is very important to Japanese people. “Hanami” (cherry blossom viewing) is an old Japanese spring tradition that has been practiced for centuries.
The cherry blossoms bring up many good memories as well as bittersweet ones to me. I grew up in Mexico where I had the opportunity to enjoy the cherry blossoms in a beautiful park in the south. That is why it causes me great pleasure to see them every time I visit Japan.
The cherry blossoms are very important to Japanese people as many celebrations and festivals take place during the blooming season. This very short blooming period is often compared to the transition nature of life. It reminds us that every beginning has an end and that life is beautiful, yet very short.
My most favorite part of the cherry blossoms is not the blooming but actually the falling cherry blossoms petals.
I will never forget the breathtaking view of falling cherry blossoms in April exactly ten years ago. I went to the Ueno Park and I was speechless as I saw tens of thousands of petals falling from the cherry blossoms trees.
For a second, I thought we were in a different world of pink snowflakes falling gently on our skin.
Nature is unstoppable, beautifully designed and sculptured, and it keeps coming back all the time. Even though humans have abused it, for survival or greed, earth is resilient, hardy, like us, just like us, human beings.
We are composed of molecular proteins and atoms that gives us life, just like the rest of the inhabitants of earth.
The problem is that sometimes we forget our composition and genetics, and because we deal with advanced technology since the industrial revolution, we dissociate ourselves mentally from nature.
Ergo, we – humans – are unstoppable too. We keep on growing, discovering, conquering, understanding, creating Let us not forget that our humanity is part of the earth that we admire so much when we look at the horizon, that colossal sunset, the smell of a rained forest, that prodigious lizard, the monumental tree that never dies, that gives us shadow, fruit, flowers, or simply…stays there to remind us of its strength, telling us: “you are me, I am you, we are nature”
Yeah, when a flower can get it from nature genetics?! Oh, I forgot: we undeveloped humans CANNOT!
Flower Lips, a very rare flower with luscious red lips, known scientifically as Psychotria Elata.
These flower grows in trees or shrubs which are very low-growing and can be found in tropical places like Costa Rica, Panama and Colombia, particularly in areas that tend to get a lot of rainfall.
INTERESTING FACT: These red lips are commonly called flowers, but they are actually leaf-like bracts.
About beauty in nature, quoting one of my favorite authors of all time:
“There are moments when all anxiety and stated toil are becalmed in the infinite leisure and repose of nature.” —> Henry David Thoreau
“Wildness is the preservation of the World.” —> Henry David Thoreau
“I am alarmed when it happens that I have walked a mile into the woods bodily, without getting there in spirit.” —> Henry David Thoreau
