Silently showing the day
About ever hope.

Small Joy

Blooming orchids show
Vibrant hues waited a while
Without counting time.

I think so much surprise comes to us because we just do without craving for the expected result. Not 100% correct, but that is most what has happened to me. โ˜บ๏ธ

Welcome, blooming flowers. You have been as stubborn as the gardener. God bless you! ๐Ÿ˜

Sunday is full of cleaning, laundry and sweet surprises!

Scented World

Flowers scent the air
With messages telling her
To follow North Star.
The path brings her to the gate
Where home is a state of mind.

Home is where the heart belongs to. This wanderer finds it where she is. Now and hereโ€ฆ.

Hey, Gardeners

Plants greet gardeners,
Life shows generosity.
Optimism springs.

Sometimes what she needs is optimising the sight in enjoying spectrums of light reflected through colours around her and rests. Then only a meadow of no feelingโ€ฆ. All can be called whatever it is, she prefers calling it beauty.

She realises rain has brought a lot of happiness to the orchids. It probably contains fertiliser triggering blooms and blossoms. Strong roots, healthy leaves, appearing flower stems, keiki. Thank you.

Nature greets those whoโ€™d like to take care of others who also want to survive, even the least of care is repaid.

Salaamโ€ฆ.

these what make an amateur gardener stay longer in the shower room – enjoying the beauty of colours and looking down a crowded crossroad
pretty!

pretty!
pretty!
pretty!

Harvest

If I can meet you,
I wonโ€™t stop calling your names.

The orchids are bringing me some time to sit at home, admiring the beauty of nature gifts in pots.

Sometimes I donโ€™t know what to do except accepting what is because beauty is just like that. Just like what?

Just like calling your names ๐Ÿ’

Salaamโ€ฆ

this lasts for about 3 months
these duets are the most frequent show-off

Buds Are Coming Out – haiku

Buds are coming out.
Orchids bloom when theyโ€™re loved. Ah!
Best fertiliser?

โ€”

Once more my orchids are producing bud stems.Yay!

I believe they are happy seeing me who greetsย and talks to them everyday now. ย Once I thought talking or singing to plants was a madness but now I think it is a medicine for madness.

Try it and youโ€™ll find those plants happier by showing you more vibes, flowers or fruits and yourself happier for knowing that you still have friends offline during this remote work.

I wish my orchids get happier and happier and so do I.

May all beings be happy. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Orchids in Changi Airport (a few to enjoy)

To me, this airport has one added value. It provides nature presentation among those modern establishments. Some spots are decorated with plants and pools full with koi fish. In Chinese culture, this fish is believed to bring luck and wealth. In one central point is two giant bouquets of flower arrangement with flow of water and sounds of forest are played…. So much like surrounded by atmosphere of rain forest.

ย 

I took some pics of orchids planted in one spot of Changi, just to remember some pots of orchids I raised at home in Indonesia and that I left to reach my dream….

ย 

Thanks to the designer and idea owner of this concept. I am a villager – an alien – in Singapore that will eventually be sent to transit in Changi airport whenever I miss my beloved country which has (left over of) rain forests.

ย 

Not a professional works but these pictures are captured by eyes unstoppably reaching out for peaceful life…. Feel the vibration….ย
