We have just returned from a road trip to visit our family in New Jersey. Just before we left, I took this photo of my Vanda orchid coming into bud over the fish pond. I’ve had this orchid for five years and it flowers very frequently, always with more flowers than previously. It really is the gift that keeps on giving.
Now the gorgeous purple lady has thirteen flowers and two more stems with more than a dozen buds bursting to come out. It was a lovely welcome home.
I’ll tell you more about our trip next week. Happy weekend to you all.
I was delighted to get my first sighting of a Green Heron whilst out at the Nature reserve last Sunday, What a ‘Fashionista’ is this striking bird, balancing on slender yellow legs, with his velvet-green back, rich chestnut body, fancy waistcoat and chic dark chapeau. Although he’s quite a small heron, that dagger-like bill looks absolutely lethal. Any unfortunate victim on the receiving end certainly doesn’t stand a chance.
I hope this has been a good week for you all and that the weekend will be most enjoyable. This is my last weekend here in Florida before we leave for England next Saturday.
Mr. GBH usually looks super dapper and very alert, but I’m sure like all of us, he does has his off days. I usually call them, ‘Dumpy Down Days’. Do you think he was sulking or just having a ‘Bad Feather Day’?
“No, I’m not sulking………….Well maybe just a tiny bit.”
Happy Friday everyone and have a great weekend too.
Have you ever wished that you had ‘eye’s in the back of your head’? I know I have, especially when I was teaching at school. Ms Anhinga has solved the problem by turning her head through180 degrees. A very clever trick indeed.
Wishing you all a splendid weekend, filled with love, laughter, good food and lots of fun.
