The heart of Aura Throbbing (夏女神之心跳)

The Greeks are polytheists. They have as many gods as there are things which touch their lives. If so, then there is little doubt that Aura, their goddess of summer, is now afoot amidst the trees and leaves and flowers and her heart now throbs with every summer breeze trembling with each leaf, each petal, each tender branch.  


I got a bright welcome at the gate of Kadoorie Farm.


full of the passion of summer.


But there are cooler moments too.


We agree.



tiny brushes amidst those who couldn't bear to wait until Aura's arrival.


The can't bear to disappoint the patient.


these can come out now. 


Certainly those tougher souls who're not afraid of the searing heat. 


According to Chinese herbalist, these are good for soothing a liver brimful with heat. 
 

But what do these little flowers care about medicinal properties

Come, bees and butterflies!


I've got loads of goodies for you.

sun chasers

 Hi, taking a break?


Yeah, the sun is good but you can't overdo it, man. I'm not a sunflower.

They nod in agreement.



Feeding time! 


I'm a kinda sun too!


But none can follow the sun forever

Whether we can or not, we certainly don't mind stepping up the floral catwalk.


But we need a bit of protection

It takes all kinda folks to make this world of ours interesting. 


We don't all need to be big burly fellas. 


 That takes up too much energy.


We like a tad of pink.



and we, a tad of purple
 

Unlike some people, though we're white, color prejudice is not in our veins.  We get along fine

Though we're yellow, we don't mind red. 


So hot! We gotta let our tongues out .



green boats beside the pond.

Our time will come. 


Bloom time. 


Feeding time


We ain't got no problem with the sun. .
