The Philippines is blessed with a very high biodiversity, including the plants living in its remaining forest cover. Trees alone comprise about 3500 species. Just to research on a species a day would take about 10 years to finish all of just the trees. Then there are still the shrubs, herbs, ferns etc. Through this blog we hope to introduce you to some important plants in the forest before they completely disappear because of habitat destruction.

Flower Market, Market!
The flower stalls at Market Market!
A bevy of flowers
Instant flower corridor
I was at Market Market! this morning. I was surprised to find the flower section transformed into a second Dangwa. The stalls were stacked with all kinds of flowers. There were also makeshift stalls where you could have made-to-order arrangements. It was starting to become a frenzy. The commotion will probably build-up more towards the next few days. Really shows how much Pinoys honor their departed loved ones. I myself will be making the pilgrimage to North Cemetery on November 1 to visit my mom. But will probably carry orchid blooms coming from my own garden, from my mom's own pet orchids.
