The Garden Community for Garden Lovers



Just a quick blog really, to say that my mum and dad have just returned from a holiday in BORNEO!

According to my mum, they got lots and lots of photos of everything, so with their permission, I will post some of the best photos on here sometime in the next couple of weeks.
One flower they did manage to see was a Rafflesia!
This is one of the smelliest flowers in the world and is also parasitic, living on the roots of the vine Tetrastigma.
For you orchid lovers, I am hoping my dad managed to get some photos of the ones they saw whilst on a tour.

Keep watching and happy gardening to you all!

Mum and dad had a well deserved holiday to re-charge their batteries and really enjoyed themselves! The hot weather was ideal for mums joint pain.
I think they are planning on going back again next year.

Yes, so am I. Dad has a really good camera so I hope the photos don't exceed the up-load size.
