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 spicy, refreshing smell.
