    Those are beautiful pictures. They remind me of home

    Rice paddies back home in the Philippines are becoming scarce these days. They are being paved over to make parking lots for malls or call center facilities lol.

    Very nice, Zainal. Your mother-in-law has a lovely collection. The bougainvilla are lovely! They are hard to grow in nw FL but they grow everywhere in south FL. The peach one is very pretty!
    The dove looks a bit shocked at finding herself on the thorns. Ouch! Thanks for sharing your pictures.
