Beauty of nature

Feast for your eyes...

Enough of eye sore from Alor Star..lets soothe our mind with these gift from nature

'Tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes!
~William Wordsworth, "Lines Written in Early Spring," Lyrical Ballads, 1798


The contractor just changed this corner with these lovely flower..they looks refreshing compared to previous plant which was just green and white.

The petals are soft and the colours are harmony and they dance smoothly with the breeze


'Rose rose I love you, with that aching heart..' Rose from my mom's garden in Alor Star..


Fresh flowers from Cameron Highland..various palette of petals



Birds of Paradise from Putrajaya....they are a good subject for oil painting

Have a nice weekend everyone..take a deep breath and 'smell the roses'

I have a lot of Birds of Paradise at my house in Alor Setar. I think they are so nice. Apparently, so do my neighbours. They always reached in and cut as much as they like to put on their tokong! Dah kena sergah dengan Uncle Viking baru nak termonyeh monyeh! haha!
Have a nice weekend, you too!

Kak Naz,
memang cantik species ni, cuma kena make sure potong daun2 yg dah turn yellow and brown..kalau tak serabut

my neighbour kat alor star pulak suka pau hibiscus for the same purposed....untung u ada Uncle Viking to stop them kalau tak habis togel pokok tu

Hello Sue,
Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars... and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful.

Everything is simply happy. Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance.

Look at the flowers - for no reason. It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are.

Stay in the garden, stay healthy. Best regards , Lee.
