Thoughtful Thursday , April orchids and other flowers and critters...

Some wonderful orchids are blooming here today. 
I took a walk this morning and found an abundance of color and gifts of nature in orchid form.
  Two very lovely oncidiums caught my eye this morning;  one a yellow /brown one i call dancing ladies that lives on the side of a huge mango tree. 

and also  the  yellow oncidium with her  many long wands full of many small yellow blossoms waving  in the breeze.  

Then the Dendrobiums took over.

 these two above and below
 are what we  all Hono Hono and they  are very fragrant 
Somewhat like a heavy honey fragrance to me.

  here are 3 dendrobs smiling at us

Don't you love this lime and purple combo on this little one!

Blue skies make me take out the camera!
"nothin but blue skies do i see!"

The Surinam  cherry tree has the blossoms and fruit in various stages of ripe, all at once!


They do not taste like cherries tho these lovely pumpkin shaped globes do pack allot of vitamin C.
I snack on them as i don't seem to have the patience to collect enough for a jam or jelly thou i do think the color would be divine.
This was my Easter card this year. 

                                                 Hen and chicks resting  in the composting box.
                                                              It must be spring! 
                                                        this is my  Thoughtful Thursday entry.

Imagine the fun of having those berries in your sights as you mix all the red colors to paint them. People here would think you made that up!! The flowers made me so happy to see.
