Sunday Flowers

On any Sunday in Kuching you can feast your eyes with a vast collection of flowers and colourful foliage. The happening is as always at the Satok Sunday market . Orchids, Hibiscus, Bougainvilleas, Roses, Coleus and many more varieties of indoor plants and fruit trees are in abundance to cater for the diverse interests of garden enthusiasts or hobbyists. It is a great place to see the latest additions of plants for the eager consuming Kuching crowd.

At one corner of the market I was impressed by this rich collection of bougainvillea species. The colourful bracts of the bougainvilleas make up for their small significant flowers.

The above is my prized possession of the day, a begonia rex species. The colourful foliage with 'batik-like' impressions on the leaves are indeed awesome. The varying colours and patterning are a show of nature's masterly handiwork. Nature will forever continue to amaze me.

This variegated draceana species ( Draceana fragrans 'Massangeana') will do fine as an indoor potted plant.
Overall, a perfect day for flower shopping.
