the first rose of summer
...and those droplets on the rose are rain! yippee!!
(we are on level 3 water restrictions here in Sydney - that means we can water the garden with a hand held hose twice a week - my garden doesn't even get that, so it's smiles all round when we get a rare drop of the real thing)
g'dammit - I broke the whole stem off my cattleya trying to photograph it - oh well, it looks nice in the vase
we have a friend who grows orchids, these were his discards, he called them rubbish, luckily I was visiting that day and caught them on the way to the compost heap.
