Here's one entry for the holiday season. We may not get a white Christmas here in Malaysia, but we can have a white flowered Christmas...well, not purely white, but with a touch of green. Wishing all my friends a joyous festive season and happy holidays.
Bishop's Crown Chilli (Capsicum baccatum) blooms
|The bishop's crown chilli (C. baccatum). This is one with seven petals.|
|Another C. baccatum flower - five petals.|
The Wind Orchid flower (Neofinetia falcata)
|The wind orchid, N. falcata. Smells of jasmine and vanilla at night.|
|The only basil in flower on the balcony. This is to ensure that the seeds I get will not be of a hybrid with the sweet or thai basil.|
