I love flowers and plants and have them all over the house, both indoors and outdoors. They really brighten up my day :)   This is one of my favourite, they are called Bunga Kantan or, Ginger flower or Torch Ginger bud.  It can be eaten raw as salad or cooked and normally one stalk will do. A trip to a local night market and I bought a few more, not for cooking but I just the colours and have them at home.

I am happy when my water lilies behave and bloom.

Can you see it? At one time, everyone was crazy over this 'bird' plant, so I had to get one too. Their flowers are shaped like birds.

I dont know the name of this plant but when it blooms, we have two flowers in one, in red and yellow.

Even my rose behaved :)

Happy week ahead !
