In the Flower Fairyland
Ya, down there, where the white multicab is parked, there is the place of Gerlinda and Dieter.
Gerlinda was asking me, if I recognized our neighbors, they are also our close relatives, are gardening and landscaping. My response was, just let’s go there before breakfast and have a look.
I took my still camera with me.
In this compound about 100 meters from our place, beside the teak forest, lives Gerlinda’s brother Berto and his family, some with there own families already.
We were welcomed right away to a cup of coffee. But my intention was to see what is there to see.
There is a lot to see. Specially different flowers and plants. To mention are all this funny decoration made from things not in use anymore.
There is so much to see. The eyes are darting here and there.
Very prominent sits an old motorcycle between the veranda with a little waterfall and another sittingplace near the “dirty kitchen”.
In the pond of the waterfall living some turtles.
A festival for the senses and the brain is racing to find out what is this doing here.
Colorful catus here and another one is carried by a mystical swan on a imaginable stream of water.
Others found their home in modern decorative little pots and some larger ones in the old and decaying roots of a coconutpalm tree.
The new “dirty kitchen” is remarkable and an eye-catcher by its own.
In front of the dirty kitchen is a large sitting area with a table made from a large cable drum.
A family of little dwarfs has made under an old tree trunk their home and living here happily.
At the other end of the house visitors will find another large sitting area. All these sitting areas can be closed against mosquitos.
Large sitting areas are needed for the yearly occuring family fests and fiesta.
Here is everything colorful like on the other side.
Ensuring a light mind are the pink color of the upholstery, a white painted bicycle on the wall, as well as the tomato boxes as table and cupboard.
The whole place looks enchanted and is in unity with nature.
Flower and plant enthuisiast will find some rare items here.
One of the houses is guarded by two huge trees and their trunks enwinded by some crawlers.
Did you recognize, that the hanging flower pot from the tree in the first image is a part of a siapao maker?
Just have a look at the candle holder until you recognize what it was once before.
