just wanted to wish you guys a merry christmas :)

this year has been quite a battle, yet the new year is just around the corner so we should try our best to make the next year a better one where we fight for what is right and spread love as much as we can.

we live in a world that is full of beauty and we should protect its beauty no matter what. may the next year bring us closer together, instead of apart because people can do the most magnificent things when working as a community.
build bridges instead of walls. help those in need. spread love instead of pain and be kind to every living being.

Clerodendrum thomsoniae is in the family Lamiaceae. Commonly known as bleeding heart vine, it is native to the tropics of eastern Africa including areas of Senegal, Nigeria, and Cameroon. Bleeding heart vine, as it’s name suggests, is an evergreen vine that produces bi-colored flowers consisting of white bracts and bright red petals. Because of the vibrant floral display, bleeding heart vine has become a very popular garden ornamental, with cultivation beginning in the 19th century. Bleeding heart vine flowers during the warm summer months and requires heavy doses of fertilizer to bloom profusely.
