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.

Beautiful, Dinu I tip my hat to you.
Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.

"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
