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!
