Flawless Orchid Blossom

 

 

Photograph of a flawless, white orchid blossomI spyed this orchid plant in a local home improvement store. It had eight flawless blossoms. I couldn’t pass it up; bought it, took it home and will continue taking photos of it until the spirit no longer moves me. It’s rare to find such perfection.

Summer’s Gone

A field of wildflowers gone to seed.

Wildflowers have mostly gone to seed and the brilliant, lush greens of summer have given way to the dusty, drab greens and browns of early autumn. How did this happen so quickly? June was just yesterday – wasn’t it?

Blossoming Prickly Pear

Despite its incredibly fierce passive/aggressive defense, the Prickly Pear Cactus sprouts a very delicate flower about this time every spring. These are a few growing around the perimeter of the Snow to Sun RV Resort’s leash-free dog park and birding center. Prickly Pear blossoms begin opening in the Rio Grande Valley late March. By the end of June to the middle of July tunas will be ripe for harvest and turned into a delicious wine.
