The virgin orchid & fruit of the vine

I mentioned the orchid we call the virgin back in my birthday post. The small white flowers cover the plant and last just one day. Yesterday it bloomed again...



And here, somewhat out of focus, are the first grapes from my mom's vine. They're small and not at all sweet, but we love them.

Sounds like a title for a historical romance....

Great photos, btw.

Gorgeous flowers Liane. I so hope to see Café au Lait in Thailand so that you can add it to your list. I will let you know.

Yvonne, you're welcome!

Kevin, I haven't invested in that Nikon D40 yet, but had to get a new cell phone after my last one drowned on a hike - and it came with a camera! I'm actually getting a few decent shots with it.

JJ, thanks, I'd really appreciate that!
