We have a few Wollemi pines in the Univ. of Bristol Botanic Garden,Fidgetbones. BizzieB that is such a pretty picture of many flowers all complementing each other colourwise. Well done. So sad about your daughter, Pat. And her sister must be sad she cannot share her 50th celebrations with her sibling.
I had a very pretty orchid for Xmas which has just dropped the last of its ten flowers that were in bud when it came. It has three seedpods and this morning a new flower has opened. It seems to me that there must be pollinators in the jungle where it originated all the year round as it is so determined to flower all the year round. I will take its picture next time the camera is out. Or perhaps breeders od phaelanopsis have bred repeat flowering in to keep sales going. Either way I am enjoying it.
