For the Love of Orchids

Enjoy this orchid flower! Although the Orchid tree, also known as the Hong Kong orchid tree, is not too welcome in the landscapes of Florida … I love the tree!  The Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council actually identifies this tree as Category 1 on the list of invasive plants. It is native to Viet Nam, southeast China, and northern India.

I was honored to be invited to a friend’s home in Boynton Beach, Florida, and take photos of the orchid tree in bloom about three weeks ago.  It was stunning … it was beautiful! The striking deep lavender color with a splash of coral red tones in the middle was a view to love.  My camera could not stop shooting! Sadly, it is no longer in bloom, but I look forward to the next season and discover other colors; red or white.

Let’s see what my camera captures next time.
