Singaporean national treasure,
color profusion midst verdant green.
Spider orchid spins tendrils
from delicate parasol top.
Lemon veined apricot petals.
Violet spattered faces
with sweet white noses.
Beauties preen in mirrored path.
Come ye visitors, cross land and sea.
This orchid splendor shall mesmerize thee.
Photos taken yesterday at Singapore’s Botanical Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in their National Orchid Gardem section. Singapore is one of the leading orchid exporters in the world. On a personal note, asking my readers to bear with me. Using an iPad while traveling — not as adept at posting with it.
