Yellow Lily

I bought some lily bulbs and planted them in pots back in March.  I had never grown lilies before so I did not know what to expect.  As I waited anxiously watching them grow, I worried as the stalks grew taller and taller with no sign of flowers. When the first flower eventually came out and fully bloomed, I was so pleased.

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.
