this is my birthday deviation for ... me ♥ .

What's the meaning of this voyage ?
To talk in a dream
So many bends and these years we've been together passed

And all this time we were tremendously excited
About everything we saw
Everything we had talked about
Every detail of every moment that had passed

too many things to be said .
Our life will begin now . . .
Ready
One, two ... three ...



"I hope the seasons treat you well
I hope the seasons treat you kind
as kind as I never was
as comforting as I never could be

I hope this new season
brings you the cold air
I'm sure the wind blows gently on you now
I hope that nothing
will ever remind you of me..."



-carissas wierd .


Since these spider Lilies usually bloom near cemeteries around the autumnal equinox, they are described in Chinese and Japanese translations of the Lotus Sutra as ominous flowers that grow in 地 獄(also known as Hell), and guide the dead into the next reincarnation.
A famous legend is of two elves: 曼 珠, who guarded the flower, and 沙 華 who guarded the leaves. Out of curiosity, they defied their fate of guarding the herb alone, and managed to meet each other. At first sight, they fell in love ♥ with each other. G.O.D, exasperated by their waywardness, separated the miserable couple, and laid a curse on them as a punishment: the flowers of 曼 珠 shall never meet the leaves of 沙 華 again.
It was said that when the couple met after death in hell , they vowed to meet each other after reincarnation. However, neither of them could keep their words. ♥

Some other legends have it that when a person sees someone that they may never meet again, these flowers, also called red spider lilies, would bloom along the path. Perhaps because of these sorrowful legends .



believe it or not , they are in my path . ♥



this room has so many windows
too many windows

Lycoris radiata, alias the red spider lily, the hurricane lily, the naked lady lily, etc. This is Madame Red's symbol in Kuroshitsuji. From a distance a mass of them together look like a red carpet or a grassfire. They're poisonous to rodents and are sterile (planting their bulbs is how you grow or regrow them). When the blooms are out, the leaves are gone, and vice versa.
THIS is the most gorgeous pic I've ever seen of of the red spider lily. Thanks for posting it!

initially, I will admit, I've never seen this flower before. but what I liked most about this photo was the fact that I had to stare at it for a while before I could comprehend what it was. I love the composition and how delicate you make the flowers in the background appear. they almost look as if they are underwater - perhaps they're jellyfish! I really like this.
