... with open eyes, and a generous heart, there is awe 'round many a corner ...
Think Julie of Sydney!
The back-lighting is perfect on this one, glamorous to the max!!
Kater: ... *blush* ...
So delicately translucent...!
I know nothing about the varieties of orchids. I've never visited Melbourne. But I get the actresses and the artists. The backlighting here is - what's the right word? - tender, perhaps.
As we in the northern hemisphere slide into winter (a tiny bit of snow today) it is very refreshing to see images of your slide into summer. Squash blossoms and butterfly orchids are such welcome images -- and very beautiful indeed!
A magnificent specimen.
I can never get the damn things to bloom a second time. Do you have any luck?
This is the second lot of blooms for this stem on this plant, Peter. But I am assiduous with the watering: one each week (Monday) I stand it in a sink half full of water for about 15 minutes, and I wipe all the dust from its 'leaves'. I also trimmed each stem after the first flush of flowers.
I can't get them to flower either. Nice back lighting.
no comment, just smiling.
so lovely, thanks for sharing it.
