Nature is simply breathtaking


 Malaysia is home to simply thousands of floral species. Would be amiss not to celebrate the floral bounty of this on my blog.

Above is the grand Heliconia and next to it, a gorgeous yellow Hibiscus.

The truth is, I can’t name this white flower above. Tried looking it up, but it was futile.

A bunch of lovely cream-coloured daises.

The Bird’s Nest Fern that is easier to find in a garden than in a forest these days.

A solitary white daisy.

I believe the yellow orchid is of the Cattleya family but can’t be more specific. The magenta/fuchsia coloured one is a Phalaenopsis hybrid

There is something iresistible yet poignant about this solitary pink rose whose petals are rain-drenched.

  1. Hi

    I had written on something that touched my religous sensitivity but came to realised that it is an issue of muhibbah among the various races and religions.

    I like to get others to discuss it so I am creating a tag to hear your view on an aspect of Muhibbah and how we as individual can promote Muhibbah. Tag at least 2 others after you’re finished.

    You can read mine and the simple tag rules here.

  2. lovely flowers and all, i betcha some of their scientific names are tainted with a little bit of noris here and endons there and for any newly discovered orchids, i’ll put my life saving the name would be something like jeanne speciosa or something silly like that.
