The Queensland bush orchid (Cymbidium caniculatum) growing on a dead tree trunk in our garden here at Mitchell, has opened up its first flower!
With over 30 flower spikes (each containing up to 40 small flowers) growing from a dense clump of tough leaves, I think this year's flowering will be the best ever.
When it's in full bloom I'll take another photo to share with you. Meanwhile I'll show you the development to date -- including a photo of the first flower.
Beauty abounds in Nature and offers all of our senses the opportunity to escape from bodily discomfort.
No matter where you live, to have a love of Nature is a priceless gift.
And yes, I am feeling much better today, thank you for your good wishes.
