Dendrobium Memoria Princess Diana

I came across this orchid when I visited the Singapore Botanic Gardens some time ago. It was named in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales who died 20 years ago on August 31st 1997.

Hollyhock

I was walking on a beach when I saw this hollyhock. Its solitary existence among the long grass in the sand caught my attention. With its strong purple colour, it seems to shout proudly to me ‘Look at me, I’m here!’.

Little Orchids

These little light purple orchids are quite common in South East Asia. Their natural tropical habitat reminds me of warm weather that’s comforting when it’s cold outside in winter.
