Sri Lanka is blessed with various micro climates due to its various seasonal and mountainous variations. This week at the cricket in Dambulla, the bougainvilleas in the stadium drive were in full bloom and was a riot of colour.

Similarly the anthuriams in a home I recently passed in the Dankotuwa area with different hues and shades were similarly profuse. I took the photo here at the entrance to my farm house in Godagama, with all stalks in bloom from one plant in a pot, and I don't think the plant has ever been fertilized or watered except for the excessive rain water we have received there in the past three months.

It is nice to appreciate and share what is beautiful around us in the hope it cheers one and inspires at the same time.
