:Today's Flowers #24


I love the soft color of this pink orchid commonly seen in southern tagalog provinces, this photo was taken in Cavite but my cousin in Laguna grow this kind of flowers in her garden. Actually every time I visit her house in Laguna she let me choose from her collection of beautiful flowers and plants. She has a 'green thumb' like my Mom and she spoils me with giving me what I want from her garden. After all she's like a real big sister to me because she grew up in my mother's house when Mom was still single.

Anyway, the last one she gave me was the red roses but unfortunately they stopped blooming when the road widening in our place started. The neverending pollution of dust and too much heat took its toil on the flower. Lately it took me several months to drop by our province so I hadn't the chance to bring home beautiful flowering plants but I promised myself I'll get some pink orchids, it's very expensive here in our place.
