The cymbidium orchid flowers began to open a few days ago.
This morning I was looking at them wondering, "Who pollinates you?" The next flower down the raceme had a moth in it.
I would never have bought this plant for myself, but it was a gift and I enjoy having it in my garden very much. It's perfect under the tree fern. And it's quite striking when the flowers open up all the way. Which probably will not happen by Bloom Day.
The Fuchsia boliviana I grew from seed has a big cluster of buds. It's always a thrill to see a plant you grew from seed flower for the first time. The morning dew beading on the leaf margins is a sweet touch.
And the Echium wildprettii...it looks like a Christmas tree in the bright morning light.
I will miss having this plant in my garden when it dies.
