The Aechmea gamosepala flower opens in the morning. The spike lasts just a week showing its lovely pink and blue coloured flowers. We have to wait for the sun to come up and then the petals open to show what's inside.

"My work is loving the world. Here the sunflowers, there the hummingbird — equal seekers of sweetness. Here the clam deep in the speckled sand. Are my boots old? Is my coat torn? Am I no longer young, and still not half-perfect? Let me Keep my mind on what matters, which is my work which is mostly standing still and learning to be astonished." — Mary Oliver, from Messenger
