as white as snow.

Kangkung is water spinach, easy to grow and sometimes known as poor man's vegetable.  It is the purest form of white that attract my attention as I clicked at the flowers.  I thought early morning sun managed to give a little bit of shade... and surprisingly made it even whiter....

white and shadow.

well hidden, so no obvious shadow

Three of them, and white is after all so pure

Kangkongs join chives, white orchids, selom and rain lilies, 
giving out pure white flowers. With a little bit of shadow, 
white is purest.

There goes, as white as cotton, or as white as snow,  
as white as a sheet, as white as a ghost
and right now as white as kangkong's flower.
