Our World/Rainy Days Are Here Again

Just before the rains came, a lot of drama unfolded in our western sky. It made me stop as I watered my plants or brought in the washing or just looked around my plants for those winged jewels that I love to photograph. Through the wires and the pylons, incomplete structures that dot our landscape and the overhead water tanks on rooftops, or the hills laid bare by all that earth cutting all in the name of development…that canvas of orange and indigo blue made my heart sing.

It’s time for these orange ditch lilies to bloom. I post the pictures each year but this time it’s a petal or two…and a droplet of rain.

Another faithful is putting up a show. These orchids/Aerides odorata tied on the Areca nut tree has a spicyrefreshing smell.

    Oh Kanak these photos are so beautiful. We are about to get them too as rains are starting to visit us now, but always in tow of the typhoons. I have an Aerides like that before, but consecutive 2 long dry seasons, coupled with the stress when the tree it was attached died, it also suffer a great setback. It is now struggling to survive. I miss its heavenly scent.
