Pond Life 20.3.2013
Ponds are teeming with both animal and plant life. It supports a large variety of animal and plant life such as birds, crayfish, small fishes, frogs, insect, algae and water lilies. More about pond life is in my 2012 posts about Singapore pond life. The stamps shown on this FDC are :-
Geli Geli (Lasia spinosa)
The lasia spinosa is an obscure member of the yam family, Araceae. The common names of this plant include simply lasia, unicorn plant (probably due to the appearance of its inflorescences) and geli-geli (in Malay)
Water gentian (Nymphoides indica)
Nymphoides Indica or the Water Gentian is also known as the Water Snowflake. It is a pretty, fast-growing perennial aquatic plant. A blooming colony indeed looks like snow-flakes on water.
