Hello T- Gang!
It's been awhile since I took part in Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday. It was the end of the third bimester here and I work at three schools so you can imagine the amount of work I had correcting tests and evaluating students. Besides all the new policies here made me down. The target is always Education and Social Welfare. Sometimes I think the world has gone mad and I feel like a fish out of water. I wish things could be different for my students and my people. According to the new policies the spending on social welfare will be limited for twenty years. It will reduce health and education programs dramatically. Needless to say I fear the future.
But let's talk about nice things now. Last week I went to Rio de Janeiro Botanical Garden. Let's visit it again with me?
The Japanese Garden
Can you see the kois in the water? I was amazed. What a peaceful place!
I saw a lotus flower for the first time in my life. I wasn't lucky when I visited The Botanical Gardens the other times: there was no lotus flower to be seen. But last Friday I was amazed. There was only one flower so I had to immortalize it. Can you see me and Miss Lotus?
Here is the orchids greenhouse. So beautiful!Pure delight!
I love orchids. They are rare and difficult to cultivate.
I will post more next week. I took 174 photos. So prepare yourself for an overdose of plants and flowers.
I created some papers. It's all yours. Just right click and save them.
And here is for Susi and Valerie. It is spring here. Today was very hot. We are observing DST now so we are one hour ahead.
I made the background with watercolor pencils. Love the effect.
A flower for you all. Have a magical week and visit Elizabeth's blog.
