Love these bromeliads!

Just recently we happened upon a¬†wonderful bromeliad display. The flowers on some were huge!….had to take photos of these beauties. The colours were vibrant, and an interesting contrast to the strappy and sculptural leaves. I’ve also thrown in a couple of extra images of a gorgeous orchid and a brilliant walking stick palm….hope you enjoy!

 

Strange flowering orchid type plant!

A strange orchid plant is flowering at our place right now…the smell is delicious and like vanilla. The flower is fabulous, large and exotic, and there should be some more emerging soon. What a great surprise…didn’t think it would actually do anything, but it’s a magnificent gift from friends. This is nature at its most intriguing, and a beautiful inspiration for us artists!
