  1. Beautiful photos. That first one is really fantastic.

    Cher Sunray Gardens

  2. They are all beautiful, special orchids - thank you for sharing

  3. Wszystkie są piękne, a ten pierwszy stoi na parapecie mojego okna. Pozdrawiam.
    All are beautiful, and the first standing on my window sill. Yours.

  4. Kalaeidoscope, for its bright, cheerful colour and large-ish petals. :-)

  5. The plants look awesome! I have the caladium cosmic flare! Now I knw the name! hahhaha...

  6. All of it is so beautiful but the I-Hsin Dalmation caught my eye and I cannot help it but see this first before anything.
    How was Floria this year? Was it much better than the previous ones?

    1. Actually I prefer last year's Roses! They didn't get ready the printed program/brochures on opening day and many of the bougainvillea plants don't have flowers, even in the competition area where the plants look quite bare. I expected all the bougainvilleas to be in full bloom. Hope things get better as it progresses.

  7. Cantik ! tapi tak ada Bougainvillea, thema tahun ini !
    Nice clicks !

    1. Memang ada banyak pokok bunga kertas. Cuma belum masuk blog MNG lagi, - coming soon! ^_^

  8. Even if I am more of an orchid person, I am not so impressed with those orchids, i prefer the caladiums. Are they bred in Malaysia or Thailand? However, by their looks the variegation might segregate and revert to the original colors of the parent. I don't know, just a hunch. That first orchid might be 'Dalmatian' not dalmation, hehe. It looks like dalmatian!

    1. I too am an orchid person' who has fallen in love with caladiums. Regarding the caladiums, I have no idea where they came from. Thank you very much for correcting my spelling error. Actually I was thinking of you when I was typing out the word "dalmation" earlier. I was thinking about this in my mind and wondering if you can spot any typo mistakes in this post! Haha, you are very observant indeed ^_~

  9. Thanks for sharing this Autumn Belle, fantastic photos!

  10. Gorgeous flowers and plants.

  11. Loved the orchids...I missed this exhibit that day. Now there is an excuse to go a second time, hehe.
