A Flowery Welcome Home

It's good to be back.
As "Dug-out Doug," or Douglas MacArthur said late in '44 on Leyte, "I have returned." It's always nice to come home, and now that Rainy Season has also returned with a vengeance, everything is lush and green again.
We had a typical tropical "gully washer" last night, the kind that brings torrents of rain so violent that it drowns out conversation. I went out with my cam in one hand and my morning coffee in the other.
I never grow tired of glorying in the sight of God's second greatest gift to mankind, the first being Filipinas of course!
I need to get off my duff and learn the names of these beautiful plants. The only ones I'm sure of are the orchids. Can anyone fill me in? I'm pretty sure this one is some kind of lily. Davao was great. My next post will be about my trip there. Stay tuned......

Hi, those are a few of the flowers growing on the grounds of my home here in Pampanga.
