Old Favorite



Old Favorite, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

I know this flower very well though not by name. I grew up with this flower and it was perhaps the prettiest in my grandmother's garden. One that we were not allowed to pluck. But then again, we shouldn't have been doing that but somehow we got away with another one. Not this one though, she would have noticed. Or her eldest son would have told on us.

Flowers need to be picked - that way they gift you with more of them in your garden while those you pick will brighten up your room
One reason why I love cutting gardens

It is nice that flowers have memories, those flowers are best and most important in garden.
Always when you walk in your garden and see this flower, you remember your grandmother.

What a beauty, perfectly captured by your lens. I think it's called Bangkok kalachuchi (impala lily). It's native of South Africa but was introduced to the Philippines from Thailand that's why it's called Bangkok Kalachuchi.

Thanks everyone for visiting.

Tita Des, that's a nice perspective.

Laura, I love what you said about flowers having memories.

Ken, thanks for the info! Now I know what it's called.
