This is a tree that I visit every spring: the orchid flower tree, or orchid tree, or something like that. It is covered with these ridiculously luscious flowers, and seems as if it is from another world altogether.
You can thank Ms. Fraggy for the bit of inspiration!
This orchid has been slowly uncurling for the past few weeks. This morning I wandered into the corner of the house where it lives, and was delightfully surprised – it is really lovely and has a sweet, unobnoxious fragrance. Lucky me!
