Ecuador is full of legends about the volcanoes, in this case the Cotopaxi is one of them. The legend says that the Cotopaxi was in love with the Ilinizas north, who was already married to the Ilinizas south. The Rumiñahui volcano was friends with the Ilinizas south and told him of the adventure his wife was having, this destroyed the Corazon Volcano, who is the son of the Ilinizas , who cried to much the Quilotoa lagoon was formed. This is why the Cotopaxi is covered in clouds most of the time as he is ashamed of damaging the relationship between the Ilinizas north and south.

We were just planting a bunch of Malva plants, they grow well at altitude and have loads of purple flowers which the bees love.
Bees are so hard to photograph, I just happened to snap this one and was lucky indeed.
There has been loads of rain recently after months of dry. Suddenly this flower popped up from the nothingness. ( is that even a word) almost over night. It is rather a beautiful flower and it doesn’t last long and if I can get it right there will be some more photos of it over the coming days.
So, finding different photos from different angles is beginning to become a challenge at only half way through the month. But these rose buds should provide some interesting shots over the coming days.
Carnation, love them, such lovely colours, this has been budding for a few days now and there are a few other buds around it, so I am sure there will be more photos of this carnation in the future.
