Alas Diyes

Alas Dies

“The earth smiles in flowers.”

 -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Tita Pen gave me a potted plant called “Alas Diyes” (Ten o’clock). It got its name from its colorful flowers’ behavior to bloom at around 10 in the morning and close into buds towards the afternoon. It’s also called “Alembong” in some parts of Pampanga and Bulacan in the Philippines. It was perfect for my hanging pot at home. There were young buds when I received the plant. One had a reddish hint making me think it will be the first one to bloom in a few days. I was already tired when I reached home so I left it on top of a table. When I went down the following morning at quarter to 10 a.m., voila! A sweet pink flower greeted me, and I was so surprised. What a great thing to start my day!
