In Our Garden

Each year this spectacular orchid, located near the Swayambhu Lingam, gets more and more....well, bloomy (yes, it will be in the Fictionary by midday).

It is of the giant family of Grammatophylum and is called G. scriptum, var. Citrinum, meaning lemon. One of Siva's miracles today.

    Jai Jai Shree Maha Ganesh!
    Absolutely breathtaking! Sure looks like Lord Siva with the hooded cobra worshipping him faithfully. Thank you for sharing and gratitude to all the Monks at the Monastery.

    I don’t know what it would be in Shum, but I sometimes think in minerals….this one for me would be Sunlit Peridot.
