In full bloom (Asian Holly)

I found the flowers of Asian Holly in our garden the other day.
This is a closeup. Tiny white flowers are in full bloom. :)
A story changes..., I don't understand why this blog cannot access to 'edit' directly??? I always found my mistakes after publishing the post. :(

A year has passed...

 A year has passed since my mother passed away.
This day, a year ago, there were so many yellow flowers here and there in the garden, just like to see my mother off. I love this flowers since my childfood, because they begin to bloom in the late autumn, the season there's a few kind of flowers.  We call this 'Tsuwabuki' in Japanese, the botanical name is 'farfugium japonicum', I hear.
While I reminded my mom, and I came to be a little sentimental, an ant appeared on the petal (the bigger flower on the right).

 And the bee was coming to another flower! I could capture them!
If possible, I want to meet you and see your smiling again, Mom.
