WALKING... CAMINHANDO...











Photos taken by myself near my house. Fotos tiradas por mim perto de casa.
I posted these picture some times ago, but they still are some of my favorites. Eu postei estas fotos tempos atrás, mas elas continuam sendo algumas das minhas favoritas.
 
PS: These orange flowers are "Flame Vine", (Pyrostegia venusta), in Portuguese known as "Flor-de-São João". They are considered invasive, is a woody climber that climbs with its tendrils. Popularly known as Fleur-de-Saint-John and Cipo-de-Saint-John, almost all native to Brazil, is found in roadsides, ravines and fences. They begins to bloom in May and runs until September, varying in each state of Brazil. It has medicinal properties and are toxic too.  I did three posts about them and you can see more about that flowers clicking on the label "Flame Vine".

  15. I adore those beautiful huge trees Sonia! I especially loved the number 5 image with the moon just visible over the tree and looking out and over the water, just lovely.
    the flame vine is very popular here and is grown as a privacy hedge between properties.
    have a wonderful week my dear sonia.
    Hugs
    Rose
