Amazing Orchids

It is that time of year when these orchids bloom in the mock orange tree.

The common name is the  black orchid.
i find the color more of a maroon to my artistic eye.

 (trichoglottis brachiata)
They have a heavy honey fragrance and
they attach to the mock orange tree and put out roots that twine around the branches.
What an amazing show they put on at the end of summer!! 

 i hope you have a moment to sit with nature and enjoy the beauty all arounds us.
Have a fine weekend!!

Today it is a fine time to sit with mother nature and all her bounty and
 breathe in deeply!
be well, sonja

They are quite astonishing! Just beautiful. I'm sure it's a heady time to sit peacefully and smell the aroma. Enjoy.
