Birds of Paradise

My host took me to the far corner of her garden to show me her birds of paradise. She led me through deep leaves and muddy ground to see these beauties. She pointed and told me to frame these 3. I got 3 kinds in one snap!

Then she drove me to her friend's garden to see more...



God Almighty first planted a garden. 
And indeed, it is the purest of human pleasures.
