Flower of the Day – August 10, 2015 – Bamboo Orchid | cocoaevenings

I had unwittingly taken a week-long break from posting Flower of the Day. I must have had subconsciously counted down to the long weekend over here.

Today is the last day of the long weekend, so I will celebrate it with an orchid, the Bamboo Orchid.

I briefly mentioned that orchids are arguably my favourite flower because my national flower is an orchid, the Vanda Miss Joaquim. But had I also say that my mother loves orchids? I have never asked her for a reason, though.

Regardless, orchids are alluring, are they not? They look like dancers in the wind. The purple frills of the Bamboo Orchid look like the linings of a ballroom dress.

Today, share your favourite flower with me!

Feel free to leave a link to your Instagram, Twitter, blog post, Flickr, etc, if that is where your flower photo is.

Enjoy!

Cocoa’s notes:

The Papilionanthe Singapore Golden Jubilee! has been created by the Singapore Botanic Gardens to commemorate Singapore’s 50th birthday on 9 August 2015.
