Like Thursday

i like flowers a lot. on Thursday and on  all the remaining days of the week.

This lovely orchid  above and below  was a gift from a friend  and is called "child of the air" or "foxtail orchid" and is a member of the Aerides family of orchids. It only blooms once a year and its in August i can take in its sweet fragrance. Ain't Nature grand!!

Trichoglottis brachiata
Black orchid


 Night Blooming Cereus






This loquat  against the sky caught my eye.
It is very orangey and very bitter!

I like very much to walk about and see these  wonderful plants and flowers and leaves and drink in their fragrances. While i was observing the Night Blooming Cereus  this morning, i saw bees tickling the tiny filaments while gathering pollen!
Ain't Nature Grand!!

I was lucky enough to see a night blooming cereus bloom here in my SIL's greenhouse nearly 30 years ago. It was quite a reason for a party! To be surrounded daily by such delicate blooms would be such an event in itself. Visiting here has always been an occasion for me to stop and smell the flowers, and be still. Thank you for sharing your enchanted world.
