Enjoying Pretty Flowers & Simple Food

One morning I noticed that my yellow ginger or turmeric plant has flowered again. I have to move the pot to have the flower facing me.
 I bent down to take a good snapshot of the flower.
Can you see the different shades of colours?
 Can you see the above little floret?
Suddenly, I noticed that the cute little floret has "fangs".
 When we slow down and take time to observe the things of nature, we get to see the beauty of God's amazing creation.
 This bee was too busy doing what it knows best.
 It was almost covered with pollen in this red okra flower.
 3 days later, more pretty florets appeared on this yellow ginger or turmeric flower.

Some days, simple food is good enough for us.
One morning we had the following items for breakfast.
My choice - Putu mayam or Indian rice noodle with black coffee.
Putu mayam served with fresh coconut grating and brown sugar.
 Hubby's choice - Toast sweet bread with butter and black coffee.
*     *     *     *     *
We had late lunch and I prepared something light for dinner.
Roasted 8 pieces of pre-marinated chicken wings and some fruits for dinner. Picture showed only 5 wings because 3 were already eaten.

Oh, for wings like a dove, to fly away and rest!
(Psalm 55:6, The Living Bible-TLB)


  1. Oh so that is how okra and tumeric flowers look like

  2. Lindas as flores e a comida tem muito bom aspecto.
    Um abraço e continuação de uma boa semana.

  7. The chicken looks delicious. Such a joy to see the blooms.

  8. Excellent shots of the very intricate parts of your plant. Yes, I do see fangs! The noodles and chicken looks so good!

  9. The flowers are beautiful, and it's fun to watch a bee at her work.

    Very nice, light meals!

  10. I like roasted chicken wings. Lovely fliwers.

  11. I saw he fangs! And love okra blossoms...when I was a kid, one year my mom and I had a pretty big patch of okra that we raised and sold. A couple or three years ago, I put two or three or four seeds in my flower bed and raised them just to see the blossoms. And the leaves are kind of pretty, too.

  12. Nature is so amazingly beautiful, I can't imagine what God has in Heaven that is even better!
    I enjoyed your fabulous flowers with the different textures and subtle color differences.

    Thanks for joining 'My Corner of the World' this week!
