Gifts of the Rain

This morning I found the garden hung heavy with overnight rain.  The branches barred the way everywhere I went.


The passage was closed by the rain laden branches:


The passage is about 1.5metres (5 feet) wide


The back passage is also engulfed


This orchid sent out an astonishingly large frond.


I hadn’t noticed a new spike on the orchid until the string of light attracted my attention


…and the first bloom on the Camellia ‘Perfection’

    Looks a bit like a jungle, dear Mary, but very lovely. The orchids and camelias are really beautiful. Yesterday I found two orchids people had thrown away. I took them home and want them to bloom again soon. Have a beautiful day, kind regards Mitza

    The crepe myrtle is gorgeous…does it attract bees?
