Photos from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia,
by Kaykuala (Hank)
A clump of hardy Vandas. Vandas can be left in the sun without any cover or shade
These need shades and can even be indoors. The blooms can last for a month. Some species
can even hold out for 3 months apparently.
These have many varieties and are more of miniature sprays. Many are strikingly of yellow hues
These need cover and are of individual stalks. The stalks sprout from between the leaves progressing
upwards stalk by stalk as it grows while the older ones die off
These are of an individually growing specie flower by flower
But back to poetry! It is always enjoyable for me to get to know you through your poetry; and I hope you feel the same. Admittedly, I personally appreciate those with whom there is a feeling of reciprocity, which makes for a feeling of community. I think we ALL tend to visit (after a while) people with whom we reciprocate. I just don't GET people who link and enjoy visits, yet don't bother to visit others -- even those who spent time making comments on their poetry.
This week I am sharing a third and final set of photos that Hank (Kaykuala) shared from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Thanks again, Hank. It has been an interesting series.
Be sure to visit Poets United Monday to see what Sherry Blue Sky has planned to share. Will it be a featured poet? A featured blog? Or a featured poem?
Glad to see there is always a great turn-out for Midweek Motif. We hope to see you this coming week for another challenging prompt by Susan Chast! (And, ha, perhaps many of you have noticed that if you look at one week's prompt Susan gives a clue about the following week's prompt as well, so you can get a head start.)
And on Friday, remember to see who Rosemary Nissen-Wade features on "I Wish I Had Written This" or "The Living Dead."
Again: I issue an invitation here to those of you who participate in Poetry Pantry. If YOU have special photos that you would like me to feature some week, let me know what kind of photos you have. There are participants here from many different cities, many different countries. I think it is great fun to see different areas featured. I am especially interested in scenic views of your area or an area you have visited. Send inquiries first to firstname.lastname@example.org letting me know what you have. I am interested in city or country views - in your home area or places you have traveled.
Come back a few times on Sunday and Monday to see what's new. Visit some strangers, and they will become new friends! Making new friends and reading new poetry, what more could one want?
If you are on Facebook, look for us there as well. Join our site. It is one more way to stay in touch!
And now...here is the procedure, for those who are new here: Each Sunday we start a new post with a New Mr. Linky for you. This is so that you can post a link to a poem in your blog. The link will close Monday at 12:00 p.m. (CDT), but you can still visit the links of those who have posted them.
That's the last batch now safely in. Thanks everyone for your kind comments for 3 weeks running. Much obliged!
Really appreciated your sharing, Hank.Delete

It is a long weekend here in Canada too - and the teachers have just ended their strike, so our kids will start school soon too, with likely some disgruntled not terribly happy teachers. We are having a big family barbecue too, I will be chopping things for salads all day!
Plunging in to the Pantry.........Hank, your flowers are magnificent! Thank you.
Thanks, Sherry!! It was a good day.Delete
