Gorgeous white orchids...

Above are images of white orchids in our garden. This time we decided to put all the white orchids in one spot to see the effects on that landscape of our little garden. It do look enchanting isn't it!!. It is amazing that when all the white orchids are put together, white and whiteness do became colorful in its own ways. The greens around it do add another soothing color to the whole landscape. See how nature gives so much to our species to enjoy life. Have a nice day.

akmal, thanks for the visit and the kind words on this posting. I am glad that it do give you some comfort in tackling your daily ritual in studying.

We have so much hours everyday and the body need other nutrition other then food. Since we are a spiritual being, the environment whether it is real or virtual do help in providing that nutrition. In this case the scenes of the beauty of orchids surely do have some effects on our being.

That is why I have made my home a place not only for the 'roof' but an enjoyable place to live as well. And scenes like these orchid in its splendor help to provide that environment. Take care.

pak idrus,
The wjite orchids are in full blooms. They are the white Dendrobiums, very long vase life and can be very beautiful to include in a bouquet as its whiteness can stand out among the others.
Flowers can always cheer up a beautiful home and bring serenity to it.
Enjoy the beautiful fruit of your labour and have a good day.

Like you said this white orchids do stand out when includes in bouquet but at my home I found that let it grows in pot not only it last longer but it create a natural environment which I like most.

Sure! it cheered me up every morning when I watered it. Its beautify is everlasting. Take care.

White-The colours of city life.With the colour of nature,our senses are reawakened and our soul liberated.Our enjoyment of nature is at its peak when we can "switch off" our brains and allow our sense of sight,hearing,smell and touch to take over.Have a nice day.

Salam Pak,

I can imagine you and Mak Asmah together doing the flower pots rearrangement just to see/feel how the various colors can brighten your sorroundings... lovely.

My Mak too loves spending most of her time in her little backyard garden, but hers is mostly made up of pegaga, ulam raja, kesum, serai, etc. As for my Bapak, he loves eating the final products of Mak's garden :D

Good day to Pak Idrus and Mak Asmah!

uncleawang, thanks for the visit and sharing your knowledge on the color of white.

It is information like this that made our lives more meaningful. I always love white and whiteness and it always rejuvenate my senses when I see through the whiteness of things.

Living in the cities we somehow loss the real senses of of hearing and smell because of the pollution of our environment. When I was growing in the forties in a little village I could hear every little sounds and could smell the freshness of the air. In the city I tried to create the same environment, thus my little garden. In a small ways it do help.

Thanks and have a nice day.

nj, thanks for the visit and the kind words on us.

Actually my spouse did most of the works in nurturing the plant in the backyard. She love doing that and enjoyed when the orchid bloomed. I help in whatever I could to makes things easy.

As for the deco parts like you said both of us do discuss as to how best we arrange/present the orchid from time to time. Two minds surely are better the one. The result is indeed rewarding.

Like your mom we do plant those tradition plants that your mom did in her backyard.

In the golden age such activities in the home do color our lives.

Thanks for the greeting. Have a nice day and take care.
