    Alot of radiant color in your garden Angel. I have that Golden Shrimp Plant (Pachystachys Lutea) in full bloom also. It's a great plant to have. Sounds as if your garden is a bit of a nature sanctuary also........................AL

    Thank you, Carol. Bogart is such a sweet creature and very playful too. That photo was taken while he was "patrolling" the fence area for some stray cats that usually seek shade under the bushes.

    Thanks, Ed. That cattail would do better in a sunnier spot but has adapted well to the shade. You can see the leaves of a Phal intermedia in that photo. That red one is the Mokara Dinah Shore. It is a very prolific bloomer, about 7 times a year, often with double spiking laden with many medium-sized blooms. And it is my largest orchid too. I had to top-cut it last week while in full bloom because it was already around 7 feet tall with large strap leaves and would bend so much when the wind blew because of the weight of the flowers.

    Hi there, Al. Oh yes, that shrimp plant always fills out shady spots well and fills them with color too. We have our share of reptiles, birds, and insects. I love the birds in particular. Summer (or the dry season from March to May) is breeding time for the nun finches and there are nests in almost every bush and now even among the vanda roots.

    Thanks, Harvey. I haven't taken pic of some of the other flowers. The hot tropical sun caught up with me.
