White Ixora

When we were kids, my sister and I played a lot in the garden. Catching butterflies, grasshoppers and dragonflies, climbing trees, playing hopscotch, bicycling round and round our car porch, collecting red saga seeds, played 5 stones, floating paper boats in the small drain when it rains, watching tadpoles in puddles etc. 

We also picked ixora flowers and licked the nectar off the style. Seems strange, thinking of it now.


  1. The things we did as children were so much better than they have today, today they sit and look at a computer screen and moan if they don't get the latest stuff, we learnt far more than they ever will, we went out found out what being a child is.

  2. So nice to have such wonderful memories with your sister. I don't have a sister, but had several friends and still treasure the memories of our carefree childhood back in the 1950s.
