weekly photo challenge: one shot, two ways

Camia or the Philippine Camia which is also called the White Ginger Lily is a common plant in the Pacific Islands. I used to have them in my garden but was damaged during the last strong typhoon. These photos were taken in my mother’s garden.

The flowers are so sweet smelling and its scent permeates the air. It is also a popular flower used in leis.

photo of the day: snowflake flower

Here’s another flower that i took photo of.. the Snowflake or most commonly called the White Angel flower here in the Philippines. It is about 2 cm. in size that look like a snowflake hence the name. The flowers have no scent but when in bloom they look like a carpet of little stars or snowflakes in the garden. The plant could grow to be a bush but a little trimming to keep it’s height would do well.

It is also called the Milky Way, Winter Cherry Tree, Arctic Snow, Pudpitchaya, Sweet Indrajao and Hyamaraca. (reference: TopTropicals)
